Most types of dolphins do best in temperate and tropical salt water. They can be found all over the world in just about every major body of water. There are even dolphins that live in fresh water. The majority of dolphins can be found in warm and shallow water. Great places to spot dolphins include harbors, bays and lagoons. Some of the larger species of dolphins can be found in colder regions, like the Arctic and Antarctic regions. Dolphins are broken down into two categories. Coastal dolphins live in warmer waters while offshore dolphins can thrive in cooler environments.
