The Spinner dolphin is a small cetacean with a slim build. Adults are typically 129–235 cm and reach a body mass of 23–79 kg.[3] This species has an elongated rostrum and a triangular or sub-triangular dorsal fin.

Spinner dolphins generally have mixed color patterns. The dorsal area is dark gray, the sides light gray, and the underside pale gray or white. There is also a dark band that runs from the eye to the flipper, bordered above by a thin light line. Some populations of spinner dolphin found in the eastern Pacific have bizarre backwards facing dorsal fins, and males with strange humps and upturned caudal flukes.

Spinner dolphins are well known for their acrobatics and aerial behaviors. A spinner dolphin comes out of the water, front first, and twists its body as it ascends in the air. After it reaches its maximum height the dolphin descends back into the water, landing on its side. A dolphin can make 2-5.5 spins in one leap. The swimming and rotational speed of the dolphin spinning underwater seems to affect the number of spins it can do whilst airborne. Dolphins may also make nose-outs, tail slaps, flips, head slap, "salmon leaps" and side and back slaps.

They are often seen around Cabo in large mixed pods with other dolphin species.
