Boaters Spot A Rare Sight, Capture A Pink Dolphin Swimming. Then They See A ‘Friend’ With Her


For some of Louisana’s luckier residents, they’ve gotten to catch a glimpse of a beautiful rare pink dolphin affectionately nicknamed “Pinky.”

Pinky was first spotted in 2007, according to People, and since then has been seen periodically over the past decade.

However, this summer fans of Pinky got to see something even more spectacular. Pinky swimming with a second pink porpoise that is believed to be her child.

Several peoples said they saw Pinky in August swimming in Louisana’s Calcasieu Ship Channel. Some say they saw not one but two pink dolphins.

Bridget Boudreaux was one of those people and said she saw the pair while on her pontoon boat.

“I about fell out the boat,” she told KHOU. “I was like wow that’s not a regular dolphin, that’s a pink dolphin.”
Boudreaux said she spotted the pair playing near the banks and then in front of a big cargo ship.

“My husband was driving the boat and one jumped 20 feet from our boat,” Boudreaux told WFLA. “We were just astonished. I couldn’t get my camera out fast enough.”

Unfortunately, she could only snap a picture of one pink dolphin. But she did, however, snap the first photo of a pink dolphin that is completely out of the water.
