Environmentalists opposed the ship's activities, arguing that the seismic technology could harm sea life including whales, which use sound waves to communicate.
About 49 dolphins stranded themselves Wednesday off the Florida Keys and more than 20 were in a nearby canal or boat channel, officials said.
