Full Video: Rare white dolphin seen in Marlborough Sounds in New Zealand. The video below shows a white dolphin swimming with dolphins.
Paul Keating, a Captain who is the chairman of the Guardian of the Sounds, said that this was the first time he saw a dolphin like that.
Paul has been travelling through seas for 33 years. He alstraveling E-Ko Tours, a wildlife company, in Picton.
Keating said that he saw the dolphin first 2 weeks ago, but was not sure about what he saw.
Paul believes that the rare white dolphin is a member of a pod that has around 100 dolphins.
During an interview with Stuff.co, Paul said, “They’re starting to come up to us a lot more, playing with the boat, looking at the people.”
The 11-year-old daughter of Keating decided to name the rare dolphin as “ghost”.
Keating says that “Ghost” is often seen with a group of dolphins. Keating added, “He’s part of a group, not shunned because of his color.”
The video of Ghost swimming with its pod has been shared by Paul on the YouTube channel of E-Ko Tours.
The video has a caption of “GHOST is a very rare Short Beaked Common Dolphin who is WHITE.”
