Dolphin Encounter - Swimmer

3.5 hours

Price from £93 per person

Board your Encounter Kaikoura vessel to commence a Dolphin Encounter – Swimmer cruise. While spending between 2 - 2 and a 1/2 hours out on the water you will interact with local dusky dolphins. These dolphins inhabit the coastal waters off Kaikoura all year round. You may also see other marine mammals such as Orca (killer whales), Pilot Whales, NZ Fur Seals and Hector’s Dolphins. Trips take place in the open ocean, which is subject to elements of sea swell (and occasionally 'wind chop') and wind.

All passengers need to have swimming ability and a good degree of water confidence. This is an open ocean experience and for maximum enjoyment passengers need to have a reasonable level of snorkelling experience.
