This “superpod” of dolphins had thousands of common dolphins spread out over an area 7 miles long by 5 miles wide. That’s 35 square miles of dolphins!
They were spotted off the coast of San Diego by people on a whale-watching boat. The captain of the boat, Joe Dutra of Hornblower Cruises said he’d never seen anything like it. The boat followed the dolphins for about an hour, and Capt. Dutra said there may have been 100,000 of them.
