The Monterey Bay Aquarium is known to have some of the coolest underwater creatures on the planet. But an even more entertaining show is happening outside the aquarium.
The aquarium shared a video showing likely over a thousand dolphins swimming through the bay outside its back deck. Onlookers determined the group to be a dolphin “superpod,” or a group of multiple pods of dolphins. The animals were working together to corral schools of fish into a small area, making it easier to snack on them.
Check out the video:
According to the aquarium, superpod sightings only happen about once every year, but they are typically much further offshore. This superpod was seen of Point Pinos Monday morning, and then did another pass by the area Thursday afternoon. According to the aquarium, the dolphins have been “racing up and down off of Cannery Row” for the past week.
Such a beautiful video showing the wide range of wildlife Northern California has to offer!
