Jason Rosenberg of Garden City took a relative to go dolphin watching the day before she was to begin chemo therapy. While they saw many dolphins, they ended up getting much more when a dolphin began jumping out of the water.

Dr. Jason Rosenberg’s family member had one wish before starting chemotherapy on Monday.

She wanted to watch dolphins.

After several days of rain, Rosenberg, of Garden City, set sail Sunday from Murrells Inlet.

One dolphin put on a rare showcase when it jumped out of the water just feet in front of the boat. Rosenberg captured the moment on video.

“We were jumping for joy,” he said. “It was really something to see.”

The video shows a dolphin fully jumping out of the blue water a couple of times, giving the people on the boat an up-close look at the creature.

Rosenberg’s relative is from Augusta, Georgia. She asked to go dolphin watching before beginning chemo treatment. During their time in the water, they saw dozens of dolphins, but the one that decided to leap out of the water was the highlight of the day.

“It’s rare to see them jumping out of the water,” Rosenberg said.
