Dolphin Tales

Here a Dolphin There a Dolphin
dolphinsssssss-456
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!

As we cruise through the beautiful Bay of Plenty we come across a small animal in the water, what could it be?

It’s the world’s smallest penguin!!

This penguin is known by many different names such as; little penguin, little blue penguin, fairy penguin, white-flippered penguin, and korora. As an adult these little penguins grow to be 33cm tall and about 43cm long. The little penguin is native to New Zealand and can be found around most of the coastline of New Zealand and also found on many islands.

These little penguins are nocturnal and spend the nights on land squawking about in the rocks. During the mating season little penguins are found within about 25 km of shore however, when they are not breeding they will travel further out to sea.

There are many colonies of these little penguins that are declining. Introduced predators such as cats, dogs, and ferrets are causing a decline to populations along with humans building or destroying important breeding grounds. Another threat to their population is the risk of entanglement in fishing nets.

It’s always nice to get a close up view of these cute little penguins and we have been seeing them out and about in the Bay of Plenty on most of our trips so far this year.
