. . . I am no marine biologist so I might be wrong, but I was under the impression that dolphins are part of the whale family, just a different branch than the "classical" whales like e.g. humpbacks?
They're all cetaceans, which comprise an order, not a family. Dolphins and porpoises are basically just small whales.
