A group of playful dolphins have been caught on camera frolicking in waters off Bargara this morning.
Kevin Hill captured the epic shots of the animal encounter on his daily morning walk with two friends at Kellys Beach.
“It was a real treat this morning,” he said.
“We were walking along and I was capturing photos of the sunrise when my friends yelled out about dolphins in the water.”
Kevin said the dolphins were not only feeding but were jumping and flipping out of the water.
“They were doing backwards flips,” he said.
“It was incredible.”
Dolphins love Bargara
Kevin, who is a regular walker along the coastline, said the dolphins were a common sight in the area.
“If you keep your eyes peeled, you might get the opportunity to spot them,” he said.
“They usually work their way from Moneys Creek to The Basin.”
