"They were riding along and obviously choosing to do so," Dr. Lori Marino, Executive Director at The Kimmela Center for Animal Advocacy, told The Dodo. "But they also kept their distance and it was good to see that the paddle boarder just continued on his way and didn't make any attempt to chase after them or touch them. Basically, his behavior stayed the same and he let the dolphins decide what the interaction should be. Perfect!"
