When a group of fishermen from Durras, New Zealand, took a small boat and sailed out into the vast ocean, none of them would ever had believed that they will have a chance to get incredibly close with a pod of the most intelligent creatures on the planet!

On December 30, 2015, the group of men took their fishing rods to the ocean, because a day fishing beat a day at the desk. They were hoping for a decent catch, something to show off when they come home, but fortunately for them, they had their camera phones close by, because no one would have believed their fishermen tale!

Dubravko Kolobaric, the fisherman who recorded this extraordinary encounter, says: “Fishing for snapper about 15 km offshore in 100m of water and no other vessel within view on a perfect day, when I noticed a disturbance in the water and bird activity a fair distance away. I thought it may have been some surface action from pelagic fish working a bait ball, but soon realized that it was a large pod of dolphins heading straight towards us. From experience, I know that dolphins are curious and obviously felt a need to see humans attempting to catch fish from a small boat.”
