Is This Video Proof Dolphins Love Surfing Waves?

Australian wildlife filmmakers Jennene and Dave Riggs have been filming in Australia for the last 15 years, driven by a passion to showcase the natural beauty of our planet’s amazing creatures.

According to their website

It started with tiger sharks, dugong, turtles and sea snakes, bull sharks and crocodiles came next, followed by leopard seals, great white sharks and killer whales.”


But their most recent success was a clip focusing on Bottlenose dolphins in Esperance, off the southern coast of Western Australia.

Using a quadcopter drone with a built-in video camera, Dave was able to capture a large group of dolphins from an aerial view. The footage clearly shows the dolphins surfing the waves in harmony in what seems to be a playful display.

Check out the video below to see the Bottlenose Dolphins surfing “Dolphin Cove”
