A pod of around 3,000 dolphins has been spotted some 40 kilometres off the Portuguese coast.

It is the biggest group of dolphins ever spotted in this part of the world by the Bottlenose Dolphin Research Institute. The sighting was made as institute researchers were sailing the Rias Baixas, near Vigo, in Galicia, last Thursday. According to the institute’s Facebook page, the sighting was a surprise as pods this big are only normally seen off the coasts of California and South Africa.
