Definitely 8, possibly 9 Orca - 2 large, 3-4 medium size and 3 smaller. Paddled with them for at least 40 minutes. A pod of 4 (2 medium and 2 small) towards the Church Bay side along the Rapaki side of Quail island. They turned and headed back towards Church Bay. Across the harbour towards Rapaki and Maori Gardens the 2 big, 1-2 med and 2 small moved along the town side of the harbour heading towards the harbour heads.

Description

While paddling off Cashin Quay, we saw a small pod (3-4?) Hector's dolphins doing leaps with complete body out of the water stuff. The dolphins seem to be heading further and further up the harbour for some reason. We've seen them off Rapaki and in Church Bay at times lately. This is the first time I've seen the leaping stuff in the harbour.

Description

While paddling I spied two little blue penguins maybe 10 m apart out off Camp Bay in the middle of Lyttelton Harbour. Glassy conditions, no wind. I haven't seen any for yonks, and paddle on the harbour every week.
