Whale-watching Tour Catches Dolphin 'Stampede' Near Dana Point
A whale-watching tour witnessed a dolphin "stampede" off the coast of Dana Point last week.
"I don't know exactly what sent them on that stampede, whether they're heading for some bait or whatever the case may be," the boat's captain, Jack Van Dyke told the Orange County Register. "It literally stops your breath."
The captain estimated that there were hundreds if not thousands of dolphins around the boat swimming as fast as 25 mph. He calls such a large group a "megapod" that he sees a few times every year on his jaunts out to sea with Dana Wharf Sportfishing & Whale Watching.
