falconroger,

I heard dolphins swim along side of the fishing boats, is this true?

Yes, seeing dolphins from the charter boats is pretty common, especially while chasing tuna. Great entertainment, but not much of a swimming opportunity, I'm afraid.

MNman is correct. They LOVE to ride the bow wave, but you have to go fast. I used to have them every night when I was sailing, but they got bored with my sail baot real fast. Still a picture I will carry forever is my wife and youngest laying on the bow watching dolphins cut back and forth on my bow wave. Big grin here!

Yes, the fishing boats actually seek out the porpoises, as that means the tuna are usually nearby.
