This is what other Students Reported:

It looks like they are porposing. They seem like they are traveling to another area.

They are swimming in groups, probably trying to avoid the tourists.

Also I think that they were looking for food!

Either they are running from a predator, they have found a school of fish and it is time to eat, or they are migrating.

I see dolphins jumping in and out of the water and they might be swimming away from something.

I believe they are being playful.

Hint: Is the direction of the dolphins the same or different?
