Dolphin Tales

Here a Dolphin There a Dolphin

On our first trip we had an amazing interaction with dolphins. We spent the first hour searching and searching for the dolphins, and then out of nowhere two dolphins popped up in front of us. We followed them for a little bit and then two more dolphins joined us. After about 15 minutes spent with these 4 dolphins we came across a pod of about 20 dolphins. The dolphins were swimming under and around the boat, eating little fish in the water, and breeching all around.

We were able to get everyone in the water to have a look and then got to spend a little more time viewing them from the bow. We would have to say it was a great start to the season here in the beautiful Bay of Plenty and we cannot wait to have more epic days like this!

Come and join us on Dolphin Seafari and check out firsthand what the Bay of Plenty has to offer!

Bringing in the New Year!

What a way to bring in the new year!

Super pods, Orca, Brydes whales, Sunfish, and even turtles!

We’ve had it all this month at Dolphin Seafaris and hopefully this streak of luck will continue for the rest of the season!

Summer has shifted into gear and we are having one of the best seasons yet with this beautiful weather and dolphins for days!

The dolphins are always a favourite for us on our trips, but we have been so blessed the past few weeks to have numerous encounters with the sunfish or otherwise known as the Mola mola! It is the heaviest bony fish species in the world and their diet primarily consists of jellyfish! These fish can be as tall as they are long and their body is laterally compressed, they are found in both tropical and temperate waters around the world.

Not only have we had these incredible strange looking fish, we’ve always been blessed with turtles! Can you believe it!

On numerous occasions we have also had the rare encounter with the gigantic Leatherback Turtle! They can be found worldwide and found as north as Canada and down south to New Zealand and South America. They are able to maintain their warm body temperature even in the more temperate conditions, which is why they are able to survive in the cooler waters we get here in New Zealand.

These turtles aren’t your usual hard shell turtles; hence the name leather back, they have a thick leathery skin and are one of the deepest diving marine animals out there reaching depths of up to 1,200m! These turtles, like the sunfish also feed on large jellyfish!

We are crossing our fingers and toes that this magnificent season continues with plentiful encounters with the dolphins and any other marine life that wishes to grace us with their presence!

Join us in 2017 while the sun is shining and the water is warm for the experience of a lifetime!
