Wow! Rare Dolphin Stampede Caught on Video.

A humongous pod of about 1,000 Common Dolphins stampeded off the coast of Dana Point, California.

Like a herd of elephants, except more graceful.

Dolphin Safari wrote on the video’s YouTube page:

“The line of dolphins could be seen miles away churning up the water. The dolphins turned and stampeded directly over to the boat. Often this unusual behavior happens without warning or anything frightening them as was the case this time.”

According to Dolphin Safari, Dana Point, California has the greatest density of oceanic dolphins per square mile “of anywhere in the world”

Watching this video made me smile and gave me goosebumps. Hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.


For a more sobering look at dolphins, there’s The Cove—a documentary I’m afraid to watch because I know it will break my heart. Hell, I can’t even watch Disney movies.
