Dolphin Stampede

Author: Guest Writer/Tuesday, January 8, 2013/Categories: Uncategorized

Several years ago, a good friend related a situation he had experienced while diving in the Azores Islands. He had participated in an interaction between a human and a marine animal that deeply affected him. It was a remarkable story. Now, a group of other observers have participated in an equally amazing event---a stampede of 1,000 common dolphins---off Dana Point in Southern California.

The captain of a tour boat service, Capt. Dave's Dolphin and Whale Safari, captured video of this rare marine mammal event. Dave Anderson’s boat was surrounded by the stampede of dolphins off the California coast. He did not know why the dolphins rushed but said: "I know they're not running away from the boat. It seems like they're responding to something, I just don't know what it was but being in the middle of it was surreal”. Anderson added. "It's quite a magical experience."

That’s exactly what my friend said in relating his own story.
