This is the adorable moment a pod of playful dolphins swam alongside a boat in the Red Sea.
Footage shows the marine mammals drifting in front of the cargo vessel’s bow while it was approaching the Suez Canal heading to India on April 4.
Seafarer France Niel Tabusares said he and colleagues were taking in some fresh air when they noticed the animals appearing to race with their boat.
He said: ‘We were surprised to see the dolphins. Maybe they think that the ship’s bulbous bow looked like their mother.’
