WATCH: Beautiful and playful dolphins spotted by Malta’s White Reef
What playful creatures!

Kim Vella

Luckily enough for us, there has been a noticeable increase in dolphin sightings in Malta waters this summer.  

This time a pod of dolphins were spotted just off the Maltese coastline near White Reef or Sikka l-Bajda in Maltese, found near the Marfa Ridge. 

This reef is one of the Island’s largest, dotted with mysterious inlets and caves - perfect for any water creature to enjoy.  

In footage taken by Clive Mallia, a pod of at least four dolphins can be seen swimming just a few meters away from the boat.  

Dolphins are known for their fun-loving nature. This video is evidence of this as they can be seen jumping in and out of the water in excitement.  

If you’re lucky enough to spot a pod of these playful creatures, don’t forget to register your sighting on the sight me page to help collect data about bottlenose dolphins around Malta.

It’s possibly the most mysterious case on our islands.
