A group of 20 dolphins appeared and in the midst of their play, as the ferry passed by, Ben captured an incredible photo of a male dolphin jumping out of the water.

"I have seen quite a lot while being out in my boats," said Ben, who owns Plymouth Boat Trips. "I've seen whales before, dolphins, sharks, but I've never seen one jump like this."
