I've seen it many times running to Catalina or San Clemente Is. In fact, many times you can see them way off in the distance heading right for the boat, then once near, they will start to go back and forth, in front of the boat as a game. They will do it for miles. Very cool.

Not Fake, like Jayboat says. I've seen pod of thousands several times on long range fishing trips out of San Diego. They are a beautiful site.

I ain't lyin'... and they were crossing us at about a 30 degree angle from the stbd qtr to the port bow. The low sun made the water look black with the dolphins reflecting silver flashes for hundreds of yards in every direction. Wish I could have grabbed a camera, but my hands were full with the wheel.

It was undoubtedly the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.

thanks for posting that- brings back the moment.
I've seen the same thing going to Catalina. Dana Point actually has a tour that takes people to see this!

I'd have to agree only cause it was on the 11 oclock news just a few weeks back. Actually the same video...at least the middle portion. They said they were yeah hunting i.e. rounding up the fish.
