Video: Rare Dolphin Sighting in Baltimore Harbor

A Port of Baltimore worker’s sharp eyes led to a whole city’s concern for a young dolphin this week.

John Papadakis was working up in an aerial man lift on South Clinton Street in Southeast Baltimore Thursday morning— giving him and coworker Aaron Hamilton an excellent view of the harbor below. They spotted what looked like a dolphin, swimming between the piers.

Papadakis tells Bay Bulletin, “I quickly pulled out my phone because I knew this was a rare occurence.” Watch Papadakis’s video below:
