Absolutely incredible! Man Captures Footage Of Thousands Of Dolphins

In the past, if you wanted to get a closer look, you would need to actually get out of the boat, put on some scuba gear, and dive on in. However, one man found an interesting new way to get some perspective that reveals more than you would ever expect.

While taking his small inflatable boat out for a spin near Dana Point, California, Captain Dave Anderson decided to launch his drone up in the air to have a look around.

The footage he captured is absolutely incredible.

As soon as the drone goes up in the air, it immediately becomes apparent that the boat is completely surrounded by dolphins.

Not just a few dozen either. The footage reveals that there are literally thousands of them swimming along, jumping out of the water, and splashing around. Captain Dave calls the giant mega-pod a “Dolphin Stampede”.

You would never expect how clearly you are able to see the shapes of the humongous mammals from the air, but the clip proves that you don’t always have to dive into the water to see what’s going on.

Although, as Captain Dave explains in the video description, flying a drone out in the open ocean hasn’t been without its challenges.

One time he crashed his drone into the ocean and immediately made a dangerous impulse decision to retrieve it.

It was certainly a risky move, but one that paid off in the end.

The playful calf is snuggling up to the momma whale while swimming along and definitely looks like it is having a lot of fun.
