As they were rowing from their Mayflower Marina base to the Breakwater and back they were joined by two pods of four dolphins, who circled them and began following them.
“It was an incredible experience,” said the club on social media. “They are truly amazing creatures.”
“We think they were rounding up fish. It’s absolutely fantastic to see them so close and they are really graceful and quiet.”
He added: “Last year we were a mile past the Breakwater and we were followed by a shark!”
