IN a scene reminiscent of the 60s television show Flipper, a long-distance swimmer has been protected by a pod of dolphins who scared off a shark during a charity ocean swim off the coast of New Zealand.

Swim coach Adam Walker was tackling the 25km-long Cook Strait last Tuesday as a part of his quest to become the first British man to conquer the Oceans Seven — a group of seven long-distance swims around the world — when he spotted a shark in the water below him.

Just as he began to panic, Walker said he was surrounded by a pod of about 10 dolphins that swam with him for more than an hour.

They swam around him playfully getting close enough to touch.

“I’d like to think they were protecting me and guiding me home,” Walker wrote on his Facebook page.

“This swim will stay with me forever.”
