Hundreds of Dolphins “Join” Larchmont Yacht Club

Diane Andersen reports, “We were out on our boat on Saturday, June 27 and saw a fabulous sight, hundreds of swimming and playing dolphins in Sound.” The dolphins were right ouside the breakwall near the Larchmont Yacht Club. “Fastastic sight,” e-mailed Ms. Andersen.
Hundreds of dolphins have been seen cavorting in the Long Island Sound.

    I saw them too. They’ve been around for a couple of weeks. An amazing thing to see. In past years we’ve been visited by giant sunfish and seals. Last year a small brown shark was caught off of New Rochelle.

    How unusual is it to have dolphins in the Sound? And seals? I have no idea — but I love the fact that we have these creatures visiting us.

    It is very unusual – as in never – to have dolphins swimming in such cool waters as Long Island Sound. Seals are very popular in California – San Diego and San Fran – up and down the West Coast but pretty rare on the East Coast. To have hundreds of them swimming in the Sound, makes me think something is up…perhaps they are swimming North from Miami with jet streams?? Or…could it be?? Global Warming is no myth afterall!!

    Unless of course, they followed a mermaid or two up this way. One never knows what effect the beat of a siren might have on our fine finned friends :)

    We were out at Huntington Harbor and saw 80-100 dolphins, in several “pods”. It was truly a spectacular sight! They looked energetic but didn’t come close to any of the boats. Does this mean that the Sound is becoming cleaner???

    During the 60′s and early 70′s, my family had a home on the Sound, near Milford, CT. We often saw dolphins then. They would not let us get near them in the water, but the boats could get pretty close. Of course, that was in the days when you could clearly see the bottom of the Sound down to a depth of about 15 feet.
    It is delightful to know that they are back, even if only visiting.
