This was an incredible encounter. I just happened to be in the right spot at the right time. It’s very rare that everything comes together and we’re able to document these types of encounters. We know it happens regularly with the common dolphins. But there’s rarely someone there with their video camera focused and waiting for it to happen. Incredible morning on The Monterey Bay for me.

This video from the USA says about itself:

10 March 2016

Whale watchers aboard a catamaran with Captain Dave’s Dolphin and Whale Safari in Dana Point experienced a once in a lifetime thrill when hundreds of common dolphins, without warning or provocation, began porpoising at high speed out of the water. Often referred to as a dolphin stampede, this breathtaking behavior can happen at any time and without any apparent cause. Porpoising is the fastest mode of travel for dolphins because there is less resistance in air than water.

Southern California has the greatest density of dolphins per square mile, [more] than anywhere else on earth. This includes nearly 450,000 common dolphins, the species in this video. Dana Point is one of the best places in the world to see large mega-pods that can number … up to 10,000.

Bottlenose dolphins in the Baltic Sea


This video is about bottlenose dolphins in the the Bay of Biscay.

From Deutsche Welle in Germany:

Bottlenose dolphins in Baltic waters?!

19.02.2016

A pair of bottlenose dolphins have been cruising the Baltic Sea recently. They’re not native to those waters, and must have come in from the North Atlantic. They’ve now developed a fondness for bow-wake cruising.

What scuba divers would be used to seeing in the waters of the Flensburg Fjord – in the westernmost part of the Baltic Sea near the northern German town of Flensburg on the Danish border – can be summed up in two very short words: Not much. But over the past couple of months, divers and boaters have been astonished to find themselves accompanied on occasion by a couple of playful bottlenose dolphins.

On Thursday this week (18.02.2016), a kayaker and a diver spent some quality time with “Selfie” and “Delfie,” as the dolphins have come to be called. Last summer, the pair played in the bow-wake of a tourist boat off the south coast of Sweden. Their maneuvers have become a local sensation. …

“It’s pretty special having this dolphin species here,” said Harald Benke, director of the German Ocean Museum Stralsund, who wrote his PhD about whales and dolphins. Common dolphins or white-beaked dolphins have occasionally been seen in Baltic waters, according to Benke – but bottlenose dolphins, almost never.

Since record-keeping began, there have been only three previous sightings of bottlenoses, the marine biologist said: A dead bottlenose was found floating in the waters near Stralsund in 1842, and another near Lübeck in 1882.

In 1852, a pod of bottlenoses was seen swimming in the shallow waters near Greifswald. Other than those three incidents, all has been quiet on the bottlenose-dophin-spotting front in the Baltic Sea over the past couple of centuries.

The two bottlenoses now cruising the Baltic must have entered from the Atlantic nearly a year ago. They spent the summer off Kalmar in southern Swedish waters, where they were also a hit with tourists.

Striped dolphins stranded on Ameland island

Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands, 20 January 2016:

Striped dolphins washed up on Ameland

On Ameland yesterday two striped dolphins washed ashore. Hikers saw the animals lying around 23:00. They were already dead. They are females, a mother and a daughter.

Striped dolphins are rarely observed in the North Sea. Usually they remain in warmer waters. To our knowledge nine times previously striped dolphins beached on the Dutch coast, says biologist Johan Krol of the Ameland Nature Centre.

The animals were today moved to Utrecht University. There, they are examined to find out why they died.

Omrop Fryslân reports that the mother was about two meter long, her daughter one meter. After Utrecht University, they will go to Naturalis museum in Leiden, where they will be cleaned. Then, they will return to Ameland, where the Ameland Nature Centre will exhibit their skeletons.
