Auckland's Whale & Dolphin Safari

Half Day

Price from £81 per person

Auckland's beautiful Hauraki Gulf is considered to be one of the most biologically and geographically diverse marine parks in the world. It is also one of the world's richest habitats for marine mammals: 22 species of dolphins and whales have been seen in the Hauraki Gulf. Auckland Whale and Dolphin Safari is the only Auckland operator permitted to show you these wonderful animals in their natural environment. Every cruise is different. You may see small pods of dolphins playing around the boat or be spellbound by the spectacle of a feeding frenzy involving sea birds, dolphins, and whales.

Wherever the most exciting whale and dolphin activity is, we aim to find it for you, whilst showing you some of the most significant cultural and historical parts of this amazing maritime park. On Auckland's Whale and Dolphin Safari you will experience the Hauraki Gulf from the most comfortable and stable whale watching vessel in New Zealand. The luxury 20m high speed catamaran is designed specifically for the sea conditions of this unique area.
