Large pod of dolphins was sighted in Cook Strait

A 3 News crew has caught on camera an astonishing sight in the Cook Strait - a pod of hundreds of dolphins.

The camera was in a helicopter flying over Palliser Bay when the pilot spotted a large area of confused water. A closer look revealed the cause - a dolphin convention of truly enormous size.
The common dolphin is one of New Zealand's most widespread species and large gatherings are frequent at this time of year.
