Kaikoura Dolphin Encounter

When I was younger, I wanted to be a marine biologist so I could swim with dolphins and spend my days on the water. Sadly, I came to the realization that that’s isn’t exactly what marine biologists do…

While those hopes may have been shattered, I did finally get to live out my dream of swimming with dolphins! In Kaikoura, New Zealand, we went out on a tour that was more than I ever could have hoped for. We spent an hour on the boat looking for a pod of dolphins, keeping an eye out for any splashing or fins. When we finally found them, they plopped us right into the water and off we went.

It’s more than I’ll ever be able to explain with words, so I put together this little video of my once in a lifetime experience. It still doesn’t do the experience justice, but it gives you a good idea of just how magical it was.
