The three dolphins swam around for the kayaks for about an hour before disappearing.
Hussain told W24st.com she is a regular boater, but she has never seen dolphins in the Hudson River.
“They seemed happy to hang out around the area," Hussain told W24st.com. "We regularly see big fish jumping in and out of the water. I was with a friend and she said, ‘I think I just saw a dolphin!’ I didn’t see them at first, so I said, ‘I’m pretty sure it was just one of these large fish that are all around the Hudson’. But then we saw them jumping and I was like, ’Nope, those are dolphins!’”
