Pod of dolphins swim alongside boat in the Philippines

A pod of dolphins leap out of the water as they race alongside a boat in the Philippines.

The magical creatures were seen in the ocean between Aroroy Masbate and Pio Duran in Albay province on December 5.

It was on the same day that the deadly Typhoon Kammuri, also called Typhoon Tisoy, dissipated.

Locals believe the dolphins were carrying a message of celebration to show that residents were safe now that the storms had passed.

The filmer said: ''This was captured the day after Typhoon Tisoy.

The dolphins may well have been carrying information, most likely saying we're safe now.''
