Photographer Chase Jarvis and explorer Mike Horn were traveling off the coast of South Africa, about one hour south of Capetown, when they experienced what is known as a superpod of dolphins. A superpod is what it sounds like, and is an absolutely enormous pod of dolphins, numbering into the thousands. Jarvis recalls that there were so many dolphins, and the pod so thick, that “you could have walked across their backs had they been game for it.” Check out the above video they made with the footage they managed to capture. It’s seriously amazing.
