A dream for many of us is to swim with or watch dolphins in the wild! Dolphin Encounter has the highest success rate in NZ for both locating and swimming with dolphins - you will have a unique experience that will stay with you for a lifetime.
The entire tour is approximately three and a half hours in duration and very often we observe other marine life on the tours such as the New Zealand Fur Seal, Albatross and occasionally Orca.
What to bring: For swimmers, pack your swimsuit and towel. All tour participants should bring warm clothing, a small bag for all their gear, sunscreen and of course, your camera!
