That's the Dusky Dolphin, the most playful Dolphin of all.
They jump endlessly with amazing tricks for fun and for communication and socialization with other dophins.

The image was taken in Kaikoura, New Zealand

Perfect timing on this one, well captured! Was this just 300mm or did you use a 1.4x tc?
