It's not uncommon to see dolphins in the Gulf of Mexico and anyone that's been on a boat finds that they enjoy playing in the boat's wake which makes observation easy. In addition to that it's common to see them when at a beach if you're patient enough to sit back and watch the water beyond the swimming area.

Those of us fortunate enough to live in the area also know that occasionally they come much closer to shore and the people swimming.

Yes, dolphins look like fish but they are mammals since they have a backbone, are warm-blooded, giving birth to live young, breath air with lungs, and have mammary glands that produce milk for feeding their young.
