It's a Fact...
PELORUS JACK
Pelorus Jack was a Risso's dolphin famous for accompanying steamers in Cook Strait. First seen in 1888 when he appeared in front of the schooner Brindle as it approached French Pass, Jack escorted the ships that travelled outside Admiralty Bay and Pelorus Sound into Cook Strait. The dolphin was reputed to guide ships through the perilous French Pass. The area is dangerous to ships, but no shipwrecks occurred when Jack was present.
