For some reason the dusky dolphins of Kaikoura, New Zealand, find us humans absolutely fascinating. After more than 20 years of swimming with them, I feel like I’m coming home to the family dog who’s so excited he’d jump out of his skin if he could to express his joy at our reunion.

Here’s a video of just such a meeting, experienced by a WT group on a trip to the South Island.
