Dolphins Spotted Off The Dalmatian Coast (VIDEO)

OFF THE COAST OF SPLIT, CROATIA -- Aboard a small cabin cruiser, rented for a day of beach going and lunching around the small islands off of Split, this visitor and his family were fortunate to observe a group of 15 or so dolphins swimming in the middle of the channel, about two miles from the coast.

The boat's captain told us that the dolphin sighting in this part of the Adriatic Sea occurred from time to time but were not common. We were lucky.

I shot this video on September 1 and published it first on November 17.
