Dolphin stuns beachgoers in Cam Ranh

News about a dolphin, 3.5m long, paying a rare visit to the shallow waters right off New Alma Resort in Cam Ranh was published on Livetradingnews.
 
Alma lifeguard Nguyen Ngoc Tan, who took video footage of the dolphin, last week, said the mammal seemed fearless yet friendly. Swimmers thought it was a shark when they saw its fin and scrambled to get out of the water. When it was confirmed to be a dolphin, they relaxed and remarked that they felt so lucky to chance this moment, getting to swim near a dolphin in crystal clear conditions. The mammal appeared weak and may have been slightly injured before coming closer to the shoreline. It later swam back to deeper seas.
 
The lifeguards have spoken with the Centre for Biodiversity Conservation and Endangered Species to inform about the sighting.

“We’ve never seen a dolphin this close to the shore before,” Alma’s General Manager Herbert Laubichler-Pichler said, adding, “The dolphins may be attracted to calmer waters as a result of less tourism activity in the wake of COVID-19”.
