Dolphin sighting

My friends sailed over from Chichester yesterday and saw a dolphin in the Solent.

Anyone else ever seen a dolphin in the Solent?

I've swam with a dolphin at Compton Bay on the soutwest side of the island...apparently doing so wasn't such a great idea though!

I asked them whether it was a porpoise and they said it was a dolphin. It stayed with the boat for 15mins.
