New Zealand distribution of the common dolphin

The common dolphin is found right around Northland to the Coromandel Peninsula, along the eastern coasts of both islands from Gisborne to Pegasus Bay; in Cook Strait and the Marlborough Sounds to Tasman Bay, and in smaller numbers along the West Coast of the South Island. They tend to move further offshore in winter.
