Dolphin Seafaris

Watch and swim with wild dolphins in their natural habitat!

Watching & Swimming with dolphins is one of the most awesome and incredible in water experiences you will ever have. You can just watch, enjoy and experience the magic of dolphin encounters, or swim with the wild dolphins.

Dolphin Seafaris NZ are the only operator specializing in both types of swimming, free swimming and with Swim bars attached to the vessel.

This enables get you to get closer to the wild dolphins whatever swimming experience you may have. The swim encounters are totally natural with only small groups of 3-8 maximum in the water at any one time.

During your trip you could also encounter pods of Orca’s (Killer Whales), Humpback & Pilot Whales, Turtles, Seals & other marine and bird life. Being lower to the water than most other boats you can get very, very close to the dolphins for the very best photographic opportunities where you can also often hear them communicating with each other. Whenever possible, you will be able to free swim with the dolphins or use the custom built fun bars to gently tow you alongside the boat whilst dozens of dolphins glide below and all around you.

An experience of a life time! Please check out our facebook page for amazing video footage.
