Often seen making long leaps through the water at speeds up to 22 mph (35 kph), the Northern Right Whale Dolphin will often reach heights of 20 feet (7 m) above the surface. Their slender, streamlined bodies often confuse onlookers, however, because the Northern Right Whale Dolphin is the only cetacean without a dorsal fin. With no dorsal fin, many first-time observers confuse the dolphin with other aquatic mammals like seals or sea lions.
