Superpod of Dolphins seen in Gulf Islands–CBC

Superpods are rare, but not unheard of. Photographer Chase Jarvis videotaped a superpod of dolphins off South Africa’s coast  last summer.  But to see them here is quite a treat. I’ve interviewed old timers who recalled seeing them in the 50s and 60s, along with superpods of Orcas. The best definition of them is a gathering of pods, likely for hunting when food is present.

Passengers aboard a BC Ferries vessel were treated to a rare sight on Friday, as a pod of about 1,000 Pacific white-sided dolphins swam next to the boat for several minutes. Rob Maguire caught it on video.
