一种小型矮壮灵活的海豚,在观鲸之旅途中经常可以看到,凯库拉海岸经常可以看到大量的海豚习惯性地跃出海面进行捕猎或交配的戏剧性场面。这些海豚群可以达到100-1000只海豚,海豚可以长到2米长。

贺氏矮海豚 Hector's Dolphins

贺氏矮海豚是世界上体型最小最珍稀的海洋海豚,具有独一无二的圆形背鳍,只有在新西兰海域才可看到这种海豚。在凯库拉,常可以由4到8只海豚组成的 小海豚群在海岸边游泳嬉戏。由于渔网以及农场排泄的磷化物导致的海洋污染,贺氏矮海豚被列为有灭绝危险的动物。它们的寿命为20年,可以长到1.5米长。

新西兰海狗 NZ Fur Seals


在凯库拉海岸沿途多个景点我们都可以看到海狗。上个世纪人们为了它们身上的毛皮而大肆捕猎使其几近灭绝,现在它们是受保护动物。在凯库拉半岛的Point Kean海狗聚集地可以观赏到成年的毛皮海狮——从凯库拉镇可以步行或者短途驾车前往游览。请注意,在凯库拉基本没有海狮或海豹,而是海狗。
