Whale and dolphins put on a show for bathers at Smith Point Beach in Shirley


No bull: A whale and a pod of dolphins were seen swimming amongst the bathers this weekend at Smith Point Beach in Shirley.

After five days of keeping tabs on the manhunt for a runaway bull, the Mastic-Shirley area turned its attention yesterday afternoon to the magnificent marine mammals swimming free and easy just off the shoreline.

Check out the video footage captured by Instagram user Jacob Kraniak:

And the dolphins

Here are the dolphins, captured bounding in and out of the ocean as they swam west. The video was shared on Facebook by Wendy Lou Rapoza.
