Dolphin Strand Feeding in Charleston
Here in Charleston during the summer months of July – September, you can witness the unique phenomenon of the Atlantic Bottlenose dolphin called strand feeding. This is when a group of dolphins work together to catch fish by pushing them up onto the shore of a beach or mudflat. It is an incredible display of intelligence and teamwork among these majestic creatures. While dolphin’s strand feeding can be seen in other parts of the world, it is particularly special in Charleston due to its proximity to the shoreline and the frequency of the sightings. For anyone interested in marine life or just looking to witness something truly amazing, visiting Charleston for the dolphin strand feeding is a must-see experience.
