WATCH ABOVE: Incredible video shows hundreds of dolphins "stampeding" off the coast of southern California. Brandon Lewis reports – Mar 14, 2016

Amazing footage shows hundreds of dolphins jumping in and out of the water in Dana Point, Calif. in what some are describing as a “dolphin stampede.”

The video, which was captured during a whale-watching cruise on March 1, shows the mammals in a massive group and moving at a quickened pace.

However, Mike Price, assistant curator at SeaWorld, said he wouldn’t call the banding of the dolphins a “stampede.”

Price told KFMB News that to humans, the actions of the dolphins may look like they’re “hurrying” but it could just be the mammals normal speed.

It’s unclear why the dolphins grouped together like they did in the video, but Price told KFMB the animals can be in groups of as little as 30 to as many as 300.
