Does anyone know about dolphins and if they are natural residents of Galveston Bay? Today was the second time I've seen some. While sailing in our Long Distance Race in very light wind, I noticed two dolphins swimming perpendicular to shore, about 300-400 yards offshore. This is the second time I've seen doplhins in the bay here. The first time was about a month ago. I saw a dorsal fin break the surface about 20 feet from me (I was sailing my Radial). I could tell it wasn't a shark; the curvature was different than the sharks we have around here, plus a bit big. I looked again, and there were four or five doplhins in a pod arching in and out of the water heading perpendicular away from shore. I got a good look at their heads as they surfaced and heard them blow air through their blowholes. The sight was amazing. I would have tried to keep up with them, but they were heading straight upwind. I've asked others at the club if they've seen them, and only one other person so far has. Anybody have any info about Doplhins in Galveston Bay, or the Gulf of Mexico near Houston?
