Playful Porpoises Race Alongside Boat in Alaska

A school of playful Dall’s porpoises raced along with a boat in the waters of Prince William Sound, Alaska, to the delight of those on board.

Stacy Thorpe was on a boat tour on June 6 to enjoy the glaciers and wildlife in Alaska when the porpoises made their appearance.

“It was the first time in over 40 years my husband and I have ever witnessed porpoises in our Alaskan waters!” Thorpe told Storyful.
