NZ Postcard No 12

Harry and Chloe looking for more dolphins !

A pod of about 100 bottlenose Dolphins were spotted in the distance. The staff on board showed the swimmers how to attract the dolphins by emitting a high pitched "squeal". Apparently all dolphins have an individual identifing
squeal which they continually emit to keep in contact with other members of the pod. This sound can be heard for many hundreds of metres !

Some of the Bottlenose Dolphins swimming around the boat.

This squealing by the swimmers must have worked as the dolphins headed towards them. A great time was had by all the swimmers ( and by all accounts by the dolphins! ) . The dolphins put on quite a show - leaping out of the water with the odd one doing complete cartwheels !
