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.
