Outdoor enthusiast Michael McCarthy was canoeing near the Weeki Wachee River on Wednesday when a young dolphin took an interest in him.

“He spent almost an hour swimming around the canoe playfully while mom was hunting nearby,” wrote McCarthy in an email.

 

According to McCarthy, who’s connected with See Through Canoes in Hillsborough County, the dolphin-mom checked out his watercraft carefully before letting her calf investigate the vessel for itself.

“There were a couple points where mom was about 1/3 of a mile away,” wrote McCarthy, “and I wondered for a moment if I needed to lead the calf back to her. But of course the young dolphin went back to his mother on his own after he got bored with the canoe.”
