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!

The Shy Shark

As I was standing on the roof of the boat with another crew member searching for dolphins we spotted a shark in the water. Before we could turn the boat around to get a better look it had disappeared into the deep. It was shaped like a torpedo with very large pectoral fins. The dorsal (top side) was dark blue in the middle and light blue on the sides.

Turns out it was a Blue Shark!

Blue sharks are pelagic sharks meaning they live in the deep open ocean and are found in temperate and tropical oceans. Blue sharks migrate very far distances over 6,000 km. These sharks are generally lethargic but are able to move at great speeds when they have to.

Their diet consists of primarily squid, cuddle fish, small fish, and crustaceans. It is thought that these beautiful sharks live only to be about twenty years old and they reach sexual maturity between the ages of 4-7 years old. Female sharks are larger than male sharks. Females range in length from 2.2 to 3.3m and weigh in at 93 to 182kg, while males range in length from 1.8 to 2.8m and weigh in at 27 to 55kg.

It is the most spectacular thing to see a shark in its natural habitat.
