Swim with the Dolphins

Price from £46 per person

With the warmest water in New Zealand, the Bay of Islands is the perfect choice for your swimming with dolphins experience. A unique opportunity to get up close and personal with these beautiful marine mammals. Swim with the dolphins (conditions permitting) and see the abundance of marine mammals and wildlife the Bay of Islands is famous for. The modern high speed luxury catamaran is purpose built for dolphin and whale watching and offers easy access to the water, hot showers, and underwater cameras.

“Dolphin Discovery IV” is a high-speed yellow and black catamaran that is purpose built for dolphin viewing and swimming. It has great outdoor observation decks and side-opening windows for viewing from the comfort of the cabin. The guides are some of the most experienced in the Bay and will educate and ensure you get the most from your adventure. There is also a stopover at Oteheu Bay on Urupukapuka Island on the return journey.
