Dolphins and Whales

Dolphins and whales in the Hauraki Gulf.

As seen on the Explore NZ Auckland Whale & Dolphin Safari.

To watch the vid (rate! comment! favourite!) on YouTube, click here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bs83X-LXbMY

This film includes pictures of the Auckland Viaduct Basin, Waiheke Island, Rangitoto Volcano and Hauraki Gulf.

As well as many common dolphins, two Bryde's (pron. "brooda", sometimes misheard as "brutus") whales are shown - Tim Bond and friend. :-)

Growing up to about 25 tonnes, the species is named after the Norwegian consul to South Africa, Johan Bryde, who helped set up the first whaling station in Durban, South Africa in 1908.

For more information see:
