Dolphin Discoveries – Swim with the Dolphins

Swim with the Dolphins Cruise

Encounter these intelligent and playful mammals. Capture this extraordinary experience by swimming alongside dolphins in the warmest waters in NZ. Remember it forever!

• Cruising the picturesque islands while searching for the dolphins
• Mask, snorkel, fins and a wetsuit for those that choose to swim
• Swimming with dolphins in their natural world*
• A complimentary hot drink after your swim

Once we find a pod of dolphins, Department of Conservation regulations will determine whether a swim is possible. Swimming is optional; you need to be a confident swimmer.

Our biofuel-powered yellow and black Dolphin Discovery III catamaran is purpose built for dolphin viewing and swimming. It has outdoor observation decks to get you up close and personal with the local mammals.

* Please Note: There is no guarantee of swimming with dolphins. Dolphin Discoveries operates with a Department of Conservation permit however for the protection of Dolphins and other marine mammals, interaction with them is governed by the Marine Mammal Protection Act. If the conditions of the Act are not met or the sea conditions are not safe then trips will be viewing only.

Duration: Approximately 4 hours.
