Thousands of Dolphins Form 'Mega-Pod' in California's Monterey Bay

A photographer aboard a whale watching boat in Monterey Bay, California, captured incredible aerial footage of a vast pod of dolphins on September 7.

Video filmed by Evan Brodsky with Monterey Bay Whale Watch shows thousands of dolphins swimming and splashing together in what Brodsky described as a “mega-pod.”

“On this day we saw thousands and thousands of long-beaked common dolphins spread out for miles! Literally every splash you see is a dolphin,” he said. Credit: Monterey Bay Whale Watch/Evan Brodsky via Storyful
