Dolphins in False Bay

Published July 6th, 2012

I was running late for a meeting one day. Driving from Fish Hoek towards Boyes Drive I spotted a bit of a commotion in the water. Behold there was a pod of Dolphins swimming. There must have been fish in the water. I rattled off about 100 pics, but these are the best ones. Enjoy.

Pod of Dolphins

The pod was quite big. You can't see them all here, but there must have been at least 20+ Dolphins.

Surft Up

Over and over again they were just enjoying the surf.

Tandem Surf

Thought this was awesome, watching them swim in Tandem

Looks like shark

From certain angles you could be forgiven for thinking there was a shark in there somewhere.

Company

There was a dude in there, who was just super keen to swim with the Dolphins. They surrounded him, and he must have spent 10 min swimming in the middle of the Pod. The body boarder was keen to catch some waves with the Dolphins but they weren't that keen.
