Description:

The Dolphin Coast really lived up to its name. during the five days we were at Sheffield Beach, we had five separate sightings from our cottage. We had two sightings in one days, and the final sighting involved three different pods swimming past our house, one after the other, each a few minutes apart. We would see them jumping, surfing and tail slapping.
