VIDEO: Air-borne dolphin breaches 10-feet into air for kicks

LOS ANGELES – A bottlenose dolphin was seen leaping 10-feet high into the air next to a boat off the Southern Californian coast.

The footage, filmed on August 19 by Newport Coastal Adventure, shows the dolphin breaching several metres clear of the water’s surface.

The filmer told Newsflare: “These dolphins are extremely intelligent, and often will swim next to our boat and play in the wake, the waves we create when moving through the water.

“This particular bottlenose dolphin decided he wanted some high flying action, leaping 10ft into the air multiple times to the delight of everyone on board.

“Now, these dolphins are not small by any means, in fact, they are much larger than an average-sized person, weighing in at 1,300lbs and reaching lengths of up to 12-foot long!

“To imagine that these guys are able to hurl their bodies out of the water with such effortlessness is incredible, but actually seeing it with your own eyes is something these passengers will never forget!”
