They have been seen to breach up to 16ft out of the water, landing with a great big splash on their backs or sides. They can be trained to perform complex tricks. They can swim as fast as 18mph. They also communicate verbally, with squeaks and whistles; these sounds create echoes that help them to find their food underwater. The sounds travel underwater until they hit an object, then they bounce back and this lets the dolphin know where they are, how big they are, their size and their shape. This is called echolocation.
