To view an amazing video of dolphins and whales filmed off south Orange County with an aerial drone click here. It has been dubbed the “viral video of the week” by ABC News.
Dave Anderson recently shot what he calls some of the most amazing dolphin and whale footage in his more than two decades at sea. The Laguna Coast resident, who runs Captain Dave’s Dolphin & Whale Watching Safari, used a flying drone to film thousands of stampeding dolphins just outside of Dana Point Harbor. Then he filmed three gray whales cruising off San Clemente on their southern migration to the lagoons of Baja California. The images are part of a five-minute video Anderson put together that also includes a close-up of a humpback whale calf snuggling and playing with its mother while another whale swims nearby.
