Marine Mammals of Great Barrier Island.

Whales and dolphins abound in the waters of the Hauraki Gulf. Sei, minke and Bryde’s whales are sighted regularly, while humpbacks pass through on their way to and from tropical breeding grounds in the South Pacific. Common and bottlenose dolphins and orca (killer whales) are also frequently seen along with New Zealand fur seals.
