Have you seen them? A pod of Risso’s dolphins has been circulating in the bay this week. In this amazing photo from Giancarlo Thomae, a mother pushes a newborn to the surface to take a breath.
Did you know that Pacific white-sided dolphins, like these seen recently in the bay, can swim in herds of thousands? Members form a close-knit group and will often care for a sick or injured dolphin.

Things are lively out in the bay! Ever wonder what makes Risso’s dolphins so scarred, like this example photographed just last weekend? The squid they eat have abrasive hooks on their tentacles. As these dolphins age, they can become almost completely white from the process. Thanks to Senior Guest Experience Trainer Steve Johnston for the great shot!
What can you see off of our ocean-view decks? Over 15 species of whales and dolphins, like these common dolphins. You don’t even need a boat! (©Brandon Cole)
