This morning, in time for St. Patrick’s Day festivities, many local residents reported spotting a pod of dolphins in the waters of False Creek.

A pod of approximately 10 dolphins were swimming in False Creek near the Aquatic Centre.

There is some speculation that this pod might have been separated from a much larger pod seen yesterday morning near Squamish when a pod of transient orca whales chased hundreds of dolphins into a narrow channel and began feeding on them.
