Surrounded by dolphins, the sea creature surfaced multiple times.

The North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher says they could not definitively identify the species, however they believe it may be a humpback.

“Our coastal waters are on the spring and fall migratory path for many different whale species including humpbacks and the endangered North Atlantic right whales,” the aquarium wrote to WWAY.
