Comments:
A large pod of Dolphins 20+ members. I believe them to be white Beaked Dolphins based on the dorsal fin and side patterns. Feeding, jumping, swimming fast and then slow. Observed them over a 30 minute period as they swam from Petley past Lower Lance Cove and towards the open waters of Trinity Bay.

Incredible! Do dolphins pass by often?

Dolphins are usually a fall visitor to this area. This is my first winter Dolphin sighting. I have asked other people here and no one can recall seeing Dolphins here in winter before this.
