This pod of common dolphins loved it when I would paddle as fast as I could to catch up with them. They would swim and jump right alongside me! #pacificcoasthighway #pch #california #sea #ocean #pacificocean #southernCA #natgeo #natgeotravelpic #travel #commondolphin #dolphin #lajolla #lajollacove #lajollashores #lajollaseacavekayaks #kayak #oceankayak #areyoukiddingme

Throwback to summer 2018 when we had a sighting of over 100 short-beaked common dolphin (Delphinus delphis) spread out over a large area in small groups feeding...we were also blessed with the presence of a humpback whale (Megaptera novaengliae). Did you know one of the humpbacks most distinguishing features is it's long pectoral fins which can reach an average size of 4.5 meters in length! πŸ’™πŸ³πŸ’™ #ORCirelandobservers #throwback 😍 #WildAboutWhales #Research #Conservation #Education #whalewatching #baltimorewildlifetours #westcork #PublicAwareness #dolphinsfordays #dolphins #commondolphin #obsessed #protectouroceans #IrishWildlife #gettheapp #followformorescience #followfollowfollow (follow @orcireland )

Long beaked common dolphin riding the waves ⚑️
As strong as the wings, as free as the sea. - To me, no other species represents freedom more then the Common dolphin. They are highly agile, often ride the wake of boats, and are very active at the surface. Common dolphins are very social creatures, and have been observed in gathering pods of 100,000. But they are usually seen in pods of 1000-2000 animals. Common dolphins are so social in fact, that they are almost impossible to keep in human care, that means they cannot be put on display in public aquariums. Right now, there are no common dolphins in public display in any oceanarium of zoo. They simply dont thrive in a captive environment due to their high socialablity. #dolphin #dolphins #cetacean #cetaceans #whale #whales #commondolphin #whalewatching #ocean #sea #marinelife #love #nature #beautiful #instagood #photooftheday #conservation #savethewhales #wildandfree #emptythetanks #digitalart #artistofig #artist #krita #instaart #wildlifeart #drawing
Some common dolphins doing common dolphin things 🐬
In the Hauraki Gulf we're lucky to have common dolphins around. They belong to the species known as short-beaked common dolphin. Common dolphins are quite colorful and slender, so when you spot them while dolphin watching, you cannot really mix them up with bottlenoses πŸ˜‰ @peppermintnarwhal #marinewildlifetourism #mintyfresh #commondolphin #wildlifeillustration
A mother and calf short-beaked common dolphin swimming towards the boat to bow ride.πŸ¬β›΅οΈ I can remember being so excited to see a calf approaching beside its mother, that I went for the point and shoot approach rather than actually looking through my cameras lens. Surprisingly I just about managed to get them both in the frame! πŸ“·

Despite its name, the common dolphin is not the dolphin of popular imagination; that distinction belongs to the bottlenose dolphin due to its widespread use in marine parks and its appearance in the television series Flipper. . . . @newzealandfinds @newzealandguide @nzgeo @travelnewzealand @newzealandvacations @ig.newzealand @purenewzealand @destinationnz @discover_newzealand @wonderlust_newzealand #newzealand #nz #nzmustdo #aotearoa #landscape #landscapephotography #nofilter #dolphin #dolphins #commondolphin #commondolphins #paihia #russell #bayofislands #northisland #northland #ocean #animals #animalphotography #waves #jumping #swimming #splash #flipper

β€’Sunset photographyπŸŒ…β€’ With the light constantly changing, getting the right exposure while whipping your camera around is a challenge in its own. Not to mention the feat of finding and capturing these speedy Long-beaked common dolphins with the click of your camera. Not the best photo but I sure enjoyed the challenge of photographing these guys at sunset!

The Garden Route's warm turquoise oceans provide sanctuary for an incredible abundance of marine mammals including a bottle-nose, common (pictured) and humpback dolphins, as well as orcas and whales such as Bryde's, southern right and humpback whales. πŸ‹Discover more about this gorgeous stretch of South African coast at the link in our bio! . . . #gardenroute #marinemammals #commondolphin #humpbackdolphin #bottlenosedolphin #brydeswhale #southernrightwhale #humpbackhwhale #seafari #oceanescape #luxuryholiday
Yesterday we were joined by these playful Common Dolphins on a paddle out offshore! They led the way for over a mile / 20 mins frolicking around the kayaks and having fun. Always an amazing sight to see these stunning creatures beside the kayak 😊🐬 @hobiekayakeurope @palmequipment #dolphins #kayaking #kayak #cornwall #kayakingwithdolphins #commondolphin #hobiekayak #hobie #hobiefishing #hobierevolution #nature #ocean #calm #amazingwildlife #palmequipment
Short-beaked common dolphins have once again charmed observers in Cornwall! A pod of over 100 was seen feeding, breaching, tail slapping and fast swimming off St Ives, Cornwall. See the footage on our YouTube site!

🐬#AfricaTravelQuestions : Where are the best places to see dolphins and whales in the Cape, South Africa? Whilst Hermanus is perhaps the most well-known, we have a special selection of incredibly beautiful and less crowded places we love to send our guests to, namely: 1. Grootbos Private Nature Reserve (2h20min from Cape Town) > link in bio πŸ‹ 2. De Hoop Nature & Marine Reserve (3h from Cape Town) 3.

Some of the shots I managed to pull off with my new #NikonD7200 of a pod of curious Long-beaked Common Dolphins during our @raggycharters trip superbly led by @jakeryankeeton into the bay around Port Elizabeth this past weekend.

It has been an epic adventure for our wee family checking out what NZ has got going on up the top, even if it is 39 years of living in this country! 🀫😬 It’s not everyday you get to see dolphins in massive pods or massive holes in rocks 😱 Check out the Vid as we make our way through Motukokako Bay of Islands is the ultimate package 🌴 . . . . . #dolphins #commondolphin #capebrett #keepnzbeautiful #sea #holeinrock #nz #fuckwhatabeauty

First day surfing f'real today. SO fun. Dolphins entertained me when I was too tired to move.
