Passengers Treated to 'Magical' Display as Dolphins Swim Alongside Ferry

A pod of dolphins put on a special show for passengers aboard a ferry from Comox to Powell River as they swam and jumped alongside the boat.

Footage by Simone Thom, who works for BC Ferries, shows the energetic dolphins surfing the waves beside the vessel.

Thom told Storyful that a co-worker alerted her to the dolphins, and she was able to run over to capture a quick video before heading to the back of the boat to watch as they sailed off ahead of them.

“Seeing these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat was magical,” she said.

Thom said that the dolphins are “a rare sight” which made the experience that much more exciting.

“Seeing the joy it has brought to so many people has been slightly overwhelming but a joy all its own,” she said. Credit: Simone Thom via Storyful
