DANA POINT, Calif. — Some 300 dolphins were caught on camera Sunday stampeding across the ocean near Dana Point.
The Orange County Register reported that dolphins move fastest while porpoising out of the water since there is less resistance in air than in water.
It is unknown why pods of dolphins stampede.
Dolphin sightings off the Orange County coastline are not uncommon. A dolphin pod caught stampeding in waters near Laguna Beach made news around the world last year.
