Pacific white-sided dolphins inhabit the coastal water of British Columbia. Whether on a grizzly bear tour, whale watching trip or on the way to the wild river on the extra day at the lodge it is possible to find a pod of dolphins. Whale watching guidelines require that boats come no closer than 100 meters (yards) but the dolphins do not seem to follow the guidelines. They ride the bow wake, nose into the prop wash and when the boat stops swim underneath and around.
