A well-written, excellently illustrated book that describes the very special experiences Wade Doak and his family and friends had with Bottlenose Dolphins. Mr. Doak was so inspired by these experiences, that he sold his house (and he had a family!) bought a boat - and devoted his life to exploring these amazing possibilities with Dolphins, founding the still-existing Project Interlock.

I visited Wade and Jan Doak I spent a couple days with them. Wade had written books on many aspects of the marine world. They were very welcoming people. I remember being astonished at this incredible property where they trying to grow every kind of fruit in the world- living in a house he had built. Just an amazing individual. 12 September 2019 ·. Hello to all those who know Wade.

Wade Doak is NZ's equivalent to Jacques Cousteau having spent over 50 years .
Author of a large number of books, films and documentaries, Wade is better known overseas than he is here in NZ. Wade is also a world authority on dolphins having studied and swum with them in the wild and he has traveled extensively overseas sharing his knowledge on these most intelligent of creatures.
Dolphin Island: A Story of the People of the Sea is a children's novel by Arthur C. Clarke first published in 1963
Dolphin Island: A Story of the People of the Sea is a children's novel by Arthur C. Clarke first published in 1963. Late one night (in the world of the future), a giant cargo hovership makes an emergency landing somewhere in the middle of the United States and an enterprising teenager named Johnny Clinton stows away on it. A few hours later, the craft crashes into the Pacific Ocean.
In 1975, dolphins interrupted their journey up the east coast of northern New Zealand to frolic in the sea with a boatload of humans. They played games, acting with good humor and ease. Was it more than just a game? Were the dolphins willing to meet humans? Did they want to communicate? Further encounters with dolphins made Wade and Jan Doak feel they were on the brink of a revelation.
There were so many ideas to try in the search for a two-way dialogue. Music? Mimicry? And was it proper to intrude on their territory, or did one wait for them to offer an invitation? Wade and Jan sold their house and bought a Polynesian catamaran which they transformed into a specially rigged research vessel.
Dolphin, Dolphin tells how the dolphins responded to these and other experiments. Journal entries capture the excitement and wonder of encounters which gradually developed into a relationship.
Project Interlock came into being. Dolphins had deliberately aided mariners in distress, and set up enduring friendships with chosen people. Swimmers, divers, surfers and yachtsmen reported meetings with friendly and strangely communicative dolphins. Britain and South Africa, Spain, the Bahamas and Australia, Hawaii and the two Americas brought fascinating anecdotes.
The pathway to friendship with dolphins extends to physical contact and play with the great whales. The future possibilities that Wade Doak outlines are fascinating. The great brain capacity of the cetaceans can be used in ways that we cannot fully comprehend. These possiblities come excitingly together when Doak, attending the 1980 conference on cetacean intelligence in Washington, D.C., reviews modern research in this field and then, in the coastal waters of Hawaii, discovers new horizons for human/cetacean exploration.
