A spectacular pod of dolphins seen by coastguard in south China

Hundred of dolphins were seen frolicking around Yalong Bay in south China on Monday. 

The Sanya coastguard first ran into dozens of dolphins during the daily patrol last Sunday in the waters near Sanya City, east China's Hainan Province. They then met this school of dolphins again the next day. 

The coastguard slowed the ship down and steered away from the dolphin pod, leaving the sea to them.

In recent years, the coastguard has spotted dolphins several times in waters surrounding Hainan Province, which shows the improved environment here.
