Dolphins are seen playing in groups in the sea near Cox’s Bazar beach. From Laboni Point to Kalatali beach point, they have been found dancing, and the tourist groups are happily enthralled.
In the light of the first-morning sun, the dolphins are sometimes one or two, sometimes in groups — eyewitnesses say that excited dolphins flock to the sea-swimming game.
Dolphin dancing was observed when people were off the beach during the lockdown period due to coronavirus infection. But this time, at the beginning of winter, the dolphins are roaming in groups at the nearby beach.
“Dolphins are nothing new in the sea,” said Ruhul Amin, a fisherman in the Ramu Pecha Dwip area. However, as it moved closer to the coast, curiosity arose among the locals. “Last year I also saw dolphins near the sea coast in the Himchhari area – a group of dolphins swims in the clear water of the sea.”
Abu Saeed Muhammad Sharif, Senior Scientific Officer, Department of Biological Oceanography, Bangladesh Oceanographic Research Institute, said, each dolphin family has more than 10/12 dolphins. They move in groups in the sea. Dolphins can be seen on the channels nowadays. Dolphins always like secluded environments. They come to the Labani point as the beach is completely silent in the morning.
