Dolphins Swim Near Kayakers Along the Hudson River

Kayakers were surprised and delighted to find dolphins swimming right beside them as they paddled along the Hudson River in New York, New York, on August 14. Video recorded by Habiba Hussain shows dolphins bobbing in and out of the water as New York’s skyline is seen in the background. Hussain told Storyful that she “saw at least three dolphins.” “I couldn’t believe my eyes,” Hussain told Storyful. “To top it off, they stayed and played with us for almost an hour – an absolute privilege and phenomenal experience!” The New York Times reported that there have recently been many sightings of dolphins in New York waters, and that possible explanations include “improved habitat quality, warmer water because of climate change, and the recovery of menhaden stocks, experts say.” Credit: Habiba Hussain via Storyful
