A group of wild dolphins were suddenly and unexpectedly spotted by vacationers off Sweden’s west coast.

Torbjörn Sandin, on boating holidays, made the surprising and rare spotting in the archipelago outside Fjällbacka in Bohuslän on Wednesday evening at about 6 p.m, Swedish Radio News reported.

“I do not know how many they are, but they jump all the time and I think they are trying to catch herring. Seeing dolphins here at home, along the west coast feels unique. I feel privileged,” Sandin told the Swedish local newspaper Bohuslänningen.
