Dusky dolphin

Lagenorhynchus obscurus

Dusky dolphins frequent the waters around Kaikoura and the deep nutrient rich waters provide a food source for the many cetaceans that frequent the area. Fast moving and curious, these dolphins are interactive creatures that engage with each other in large social communities.
