A pair of common dolphins was spotted cruising around Chappaquiddick this week, giving nature-lovers a thrill.
"Saw these guys swimming around Dike Bridge yesterday morning- Pretty special way to start the day," posted Slip Away Farm on Facebook Friday morning.

We have seen dolphins in Edgartown Harbor, but only in the summer and early fall. The opening through Norton Point Beach has allowed many exotic fish (even whales) to enter Katama Bay from the Atlantic all year-round. But there is no direct access from Norton Point to Pogue or Poucha ponds.
These dolphins must have entered through the gut, swum a good distance around the pond, found the narrow channel down to the Dike Bridge, and then begun to explore Poucha to the south.
We are awed. Has anyone on Chappy or in Edgartown seen anything like this before?
