My guess would be pilot whales.  They are not that uncommon around here and have long dorsal fins.  Much like a large porpoise but up to twenty feet long they are an impressive sight.  

Did they look very dark, almost black?  That would about cinch it if the fins were.

I've seen them several times kayaking and they are impressive.

OK. Sickle-shaped is supposed to be a dolphin (Mammal). Trianglar is supposed to be a shark, and two triangulars in close proximity-- a manta ray (or TWO sharks! :p )
How big was this critter? Dolphins get up to like 12 feet.


Never mind. Don's post just popped up :)
