Dolphins are found in every ocean and sea and in many major river systems. They are the largest family of cetaceans.

Dolphins live in salt water, fresh water, and brackish water, a mixture of salt and fresh water. They live in both the open ocean and in coastal waters, although more live shallow water. Their distribution is determined mainly by the availability of prey.
