Baby capers thrill dolphin watchers

Date: 8/2/2010

Dolphin watchers in New Zealand’s Bay of Plenty had some of the best encounters with baby dolphins anywhere in the world recently. Dolphin Seafaris skipper Stuart Arnold said he had seen more dolphins and marine life this season than ever before. Some days they have pods of dolphins around them as far as can be seen. ‘What makes the Bay of Plenty off Tauranga probably the most unique location is that we get maternity pods, which means lots of babies.’ Baby dolphins three or four weeks old put on a show with their mothers – whatever the mothers do, the babies do the same thing.
