Fun Facts about Dolphins

Dolphins can be spotted in most SA marine parks in fairly-shallow water

They are marine mammals. They move through the water by arching their backs and moving their flukes vertically up and down in order to generate momentum in the water and propel themselves forward

They can travel up to 50 km per hour
