최고의 기억중에 하나입니다.

오랜시간 배를 타고 있었던 것은 힘들었습니다. 하지만 크루들이 포기하지 않고 운행해 준 덕분에 고래, 블루샤크, 엄청난 돌고래무리도 보았습니다. 고래는 비록 죽어있었지만 후에 뉴질랜드 뉴스에 실릴 정도로 운이 좋은 사건이었다고 생각합니다.

Wow what an amazing trip!

Would not hesitate to recommend this trip, unfortunately we didn't see any whales but we did see two huge pods of dolphins. I have never seen so many and so close to the boat. This is also a research boat, the marine biologists onboard were really interesting to talk to. All in all a fantastic morning, lots going on to see including the beautiful sea birds. The boat was really clean and the amenities were plentiful. A great trip!

Loved it

First of all, amazing crew. I saw orcas, a penguin and dolphins. The boat is not crowded. It was great.

Amazing dolphin safari

Amazing experience for everyone. We were lucky to see many dolphins and 13 whales! All crew members were very nice and friendly! Would definitely recommend this to anyone who is keen to meet those lovely creatures in their usual life habit :)
