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!

While our dolphin trips are taking a break over the winter the amazing marine life in our back yard are as active as ever. The marine life seem to be coming into the harbour to see where we are.
Just the other morning we had a playful young fur seal showing off around the boat while chasing little fish in the marina and putting on a fantastic show. He seemed to revel in all the attention and hung around in the sun once he had finished feeding. 
There was also a spectacular flying fish later that day, slowly swimming near the boat, showing its beautiful colouring of blues and pinks when it caught the sun. We often see these guys while we are out with the dolphins. Flying fish are a favourite diet for common dolphins and they tend to make themselves scarce when the dolphins show up so its hard to get a good look. Flying fish have 'wings' which are actually large fins, theses allow them to 'fly' skimming the water to quickly avoid predators.
