Navy Dolphins?!

Does Anyone Know Anything About Navy Dolphins? Is it a rumor or true they use them?

Ruby and Muk-Tuk are both from the Navy. They use them for sound studies, I believe. Not too sure on that one, though.

Yeah the navy has some dolphins at SPAWAR in point loma. They also have some sea lions if I rember right. They're currently mostly for the recovery of training drones, in situations where having a diver would be cumbersome or dangerous.

Re: Navy Dolphins?!

They use them in situations that a diver can't go, they can dive deeper, and stay longer. they are here in point loma and i am lucky enough to see them all the time (i can get on base). i am postive they have some sea lions too. they don't have any orcas here that i know of.

Ishmael and Ahab (orcas) have been trained by the Navy. Ishmael escaped and Ahab died.

Re: Navy Dolphins?!

They did diving studies with them as well. I posted a pic of Muk Tuk on a dive once on here somewhere, if somebody feels like finding it. (I'll probably end up doing it later, cause I'm bored all the time. =P)
