Swimming with Dolphins

Dolphins are fascinating animals, graceful and inquisitive. They can be found all year round in the Bay of Islands. (You can also swim with dolphins in other parts of New Zealand, but the water here tends to be a bit warmer than in the South Island!) A half-day cruise seeks out the many dolphins that live within the sheltered waters of the Bay. Visitors often see bottlenose and common dolphins, baleen whales, orca, seals, fish, penguins and other sea and bird life.

You will also have the chance to get into the water and swim with dolphins as they play alongside you in their natural environment. The cruise itself, through the many secluded islands of the Bay, also provides the visitor with an insight into this historically significant region.
