Both Swanage lifeboats were called out on Monday to a yacht which had broken down in Durlston Bay.
Whilst there they were joined by a pod of dolphins. Crewman Andy Lyons captured the moment on camera:
Is this a dolphin, spotted from Canal Road in Gravesend? Crowds have been gathering to see it. The unexpected visitor usually appears in the early evening.
After 20 months of painstaking rehabilitation work, to increase the dolphins’ levels of fitness and to revert their diet back to live fish, Tom and Misha are now fit and healthy and hunting their own food. They were rescued from a filthy pool in Turkey by Kent-based charity Born Free.
