Bow Riding

Okay, so there's a term for when dolphins swim in front of ships. It's called "bow riding". Not sure why they do it but my guess is that they do it just for fun.

Great shots!!! 
I'd guess one reason, other than just for sport, the ship may scare other fish to flee the ship & thus not worrying about other predators like the dolphins....
