Dolphins swimming at the V&A Waterfront

Dolphins swimming at the Waterfront

While having breakfast at the Table Bay Hotel and enjoying our quiet spot outside, we noticed a burst of excitement on the pier. Gazing out towards Fish Quay, we spotted a small school of dolphins playing what seemed like a game of tag.

Contrary to how it may appear, we don't actually spend that much time at the Waterfront, and while I'm not sure how common this sight is, it's certainly the first time either Kerry-Anne or I have seen dolphins in the harbour.

The small school frolicked in the water for about 10 minutes and eventually headed off to the open sea. I'm sure it was a very memorable experience for the tourists visiting the Waterfront at the time - especially one little Asian boy who kept jumping up and down like a jack-in-the-box, pointing in the dolphins' direction. :)
