That is impressive and very, very cool.

I had JUST finished reading the recipe below, so my mindset was not with dolphins, but the seal flipper pie outline. Ooopppps.

(you have to be or know a newfie to understand why)

Seal Flipper Pie

Ingredients:

•2 seal flippers
•1 small turnip
•3 carrots, sliced
•2 onions, sliced
•1 parsnip, sliced
•2 1/2 cups water
•1 1/2 ounce Newfoundland Screech
•1/2 lb fat back pork
•2 tbsp vinegar
•salt & pepper to taste
Dumpling Pastry – Ingredients:

•1 1/2 cups flour
•2 tsp. baking powder
•small pat of butter
Directions:

1. Cut all fat and slag from flippers.
2.Place them in a deep dish with enough boiling water to cover.
3.Add vinegar and set aside to cool, then wipe dry with paper towel and place in baking pan or large casserole dish.
4.Add pepper and salt to taste.
5.Cover with sliced onions and sliced fat pork.
6.Dribble Newfoundland Screech over contents.
7.Cover and bake in pre-heated oven at 375 degrees F for 2 hours.
8.Boil turnip, carrots and parsnip in 2 1/2 cups of water for about 20 minutes.
9.When vegetables are ready, place in baking dish with flippers.
10.Use vegetable water for gravy and thicken with flour.
11.Make dumpling pastry and pat over flippers and vegetables.
12.Cover and bake gently until pastry is done. This should take approximately 15 minutes.

That is awesome! I think even lucky!

It happened to me when sailing from Barcelona to Mallorca a couple of years back.

It is an amazing sight, especially when they jump in front of the boat.

I'm pretty sure that's an old sailor myth that dolphins at your bow was thought to be a good omen..

but it's not a bad omen either

.... What? I know, that is why I said it's a good omen. Omen probably isn't the best word as omens are usually meant to be bad. Think of it instead as good luck or good fortune..

Cool video. That's one of the nicer things about sailing in the Gulf of Mexico. I don't know that I have ever been sailing here, and not had dolphins come swim along beside us, often several times on one trip.

We once had several dozen come up near us and start mating, but in all my years, I only saw that happen one time. I looked over and told my wife, "Why are the dolphins fighting?" And, then it hit me what they were doing. :D

That is awesome - gave me shivers. I would love to see that! I suppose the more time I spend on the water, the higher my chances are. One thing's for sure - it won't happen in my lounge room!
