Cruise the Bay of Islands in search of dolphins and whales. Get up close and personal to these amazing creatures with purpose-built low viewing decks, then swim with wild dolphins in the warmest waters in New Zealand. Available from October to April.

Dolphins are fascinating creatures, and the Bay of Islands is blessed with their presence all year round. This intimate half-day eco-cruise gives you the chance to get into the water and swim with dolphins as they play in their natural environment (conditions permitting). You'll also cruise the many secluded islands of the Bay and gain an insight into this historically significant region.

Join an experienced crew with specialist knowledge of dolphin behaviour in searching for the tell-tale splashes.

With a low viewing deck, water jet engines and underwater microphone, and a limited number of passengers on board, you're guaranteed an up close and personal experience you'll never forget.

Dolphin Swim: Add $30.00 to swim with the dolphins, subject to availability and if conditions permit. Snorkels, masks, fins and wetsuits are provided.

Lifetime Viewing Guarantee: In the unlikely event we are unsuccessful in viewing dolphins or whales on your trip, we will offer you a 'go again for free' voucher for another dolphin eco cruise (subject to availability).

The price listed is the retail rate - book with your driver for a discounted Stray price!
