- Visit natural habitat of dolphins
- Breathtaking and unforgettable experience
- Meet one of Earth’s most intelligent, playful creatures
This is one of many experiences included in this collection!
This unbelievable nature experience is one you will never forget. Take a swim with a pod of dolphins in the sea off Tauranga, in New Zealand’s North Island, and come face-to-face, or nose-to-nose, with some of the planet’s most endearing inhabitants. Operated by a responsible operator that takes small groups only to minimise the impact on the dolphins, the tour follows accurate tracking reports to ensure you have the best chance of meeting some of these charming Common and Bottlenose dolphins.
You will be provided with all the equipment you need, and once the pod has caught up with the dolphins and you’ve jumped into the sea, you’ll have the option of either free swimming or holding onto the boat’s swimbars. In many cases the dolphins will be as interested in you as you are in them, so expect them to come alongside you regularly for a better look. Getting up close with these beautiful, curious and playful animals is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and there is nowhere better to do it than New Zealand. Be sure and book early during peak summer periods!
