At first, the calf is seen leaping out of the ocean and the fisherman cheer as it splashes between the waves.

Then the mother dolphin soars into the sky and showcases her elegant display of dives as a mark of her gratitude.

After the dolphins return beneath the water, the fishermen are heard clapping and cheering as they celebrate their good deed.
