Pods of Pacific white-sided dolphins often surf the bow waves of boats in B.C.'s coastal waters. They are usually encountered in groups of 10 to 100 animals, but can gather in the thousands. It's an amazing privilege to see dolphins leaping and spinning out of the water — they can put on quite the show.  

Dolphins feed on herring and other small forage fish, and work cooperatively in pods to herd the schools. They can dive for up to six minutes while feeding.

Check out this amazing video of what happens when a killer whale chases a pod of dolphins out of a bay.
