According Wikileaks, The U.S. Navy and Home Land Security employ mechanical dolphin fleet to monitor the US waterway. Don't be surprise these Dolphins may someday show up in our Hot Tub at our backyard. .

Actually I see more Sting Rays than dolphins in the mid and lower bay.
FM, then theres them Navy Seals, think I,ll have to check out if our pod are battery powered.
Safe sailing

I'll never forget surf kayaking off Assateague Island. It was after a hurricane had passed with a 4-6 ft swell. I took off on a left breaking wave and as soon as I did my cut, 2 dolphin popped out of the wave in front of me. I was so taken aback I lost myself for a moment and got pummeled. I rolled over just in time to see them catch another wave right in front of me. Then I got pummeled again, worth every gulp of seawater
