I've seen a pod of dolphins like this with my own eyes.
We were sailing to Bermuda, and we spotted what we thought was a HUGE school of tuna a couple of miles to leeward, so we headed towards them to
investigate and possibly catch some. As we got closer, they were the biggest tuna we had ever seen. Closer still and we realized they were
bottlenose dolphins. No way we were expecting that because it was such a HUGE pod.
Might be surprising but once you get way out in the ocean there is not much sea life. Sometimes schools of tuna because they migrate across the
oceans, but there's not much besides whales way out there.
Didn't exactly count them but it stretched for about a quarter mile. We sailed right up on them, and they frolicked along with us for awhile, coming
up between the hulls and playing at the bow, but we were not on the same course. After awhile they broke away, all sounded deep, then reappeared half
a mile off. They appeared to be dead on course for Gibraltar.
