Great experience!

Saw a huge pod of dolphins and some Nz fur seals and even managed to come across a HUGE whale shark! They staff were super lovely and offered us hot drinks after every swim because the weather was a bit cold the day we went!

Swimming with dolphins & seals :)

We were totally happy on this boat tour and had perfect weather :) We saw a lot of dolphins and could even go in the water to swim with them. We had a very nice crew and had also the opportunity to go snorkling with seals :)

Couldnt swim but still ok

Our tour was cancelled due to the rough sea condition. Luckily the company arranged me for the tour next day. The sea was still rough, we couldnt get down with the dolphins, but we did see quite a few of them. Would try dolphin swim again if i have a chance to visit NZ again.
