Thousands of dolphins spanning across 7 miles of ocean were sighted off the coast of San Diego on Thursday, a boat captain told NBC 7 San Diego.

Capt. Joe Dutra of Hornblower Cruises said he saw a “super mega-pod” of common dolphins Thursday around noon while he was on his daily tour. He said the pod was more than 7 miles long and 5 miles wide.

Dutra said the boat tour followed the pod for more than an hour and said he’s never seen anything like it.

“When you see something that is honestly truly beyond belief,” the captain said.

I saw something similar once when I was in the Navy. The porpoises used to surf the bow wave of the ship I was on (carrier) which was fun to watch, but one day, the ocean literally came alive for a few minutes for what seemed horizon to horizon.

Then they were gone. Just like that.

We see dolphins more in the summer here [east coast], when you are 1.5 days out, in the Gulf Stream. That must have been quite a sight! They being so social and naturally curious ...and if you are seriously fishing for tuna, they can be a pain in the neck.

“They were coming from all directions, you could see them from as far as the eye can see,” he said. “I’ve seen a lot of stuff out here… but this is the biggest I’ve ever seen, ever.”

Dolphins, meteors, or zombies?
