Fantastic

It was an great experience, watching Dolphins and Penguins out there in the wild. But the show stopper was watching the majestic Humpback whales (we were lucky to see one). Overall, the experience was great, we not only got to see the aquatic animals but also the beautiful scenic views that surrounds New Zealand.

Awesome

If Icoukd do this over and over again I would! We caught sight of some kikler whales which I never and would not see back in Utah! But the trip overall was much worth it than what I paid for!

Amazing Experience

An amazing experience that I would highly recommend. The crew were very welcoming and friendly, highly educated and answered many questions. Saw both dolphins and whales on the trip and was blown away by the scenery. You get a once in a lifetime experience which is completely worth the money!
