Playful Dolphins Dive Through Boat's Wake Near Miami

A pod of dolphins put on an impressive show as they jumped through the waves while following closely behind a yacht full of stunned passengers near Miami, Florida, on March 27.

Chief stewardess Lauren Reily captured footage showing the animals repeatedly breach the surface of the water only a few yards away from the swim platform at the back of the boat.

“We noticed a pod of playful dolphins in the distance. I proceeded to let our guests know they were beginning to swim into our vessel’s wake,” Reily told Storyful.

Reily said she has seen dolphins before, but none as adventurous as these, and that the moment gave her “a feeling that occurs when you encounter beautiful ocean life. I was touched at the beauty of those mammals.” Credit: Lauren Reily via Storyful
