Great experience! The staff is very nice and very helpfull. During the trip you get lots of information, about the animals and the environment. The shape of the boat makes it possible to see the dolphins very good and close. If you're in Auckland, dont miss this trip!Reviewed by: GNM J, October 2013
Excellent day out, saw hundreds of dolphins, numerous whales, and various penguins and birds! I was concerned when I booked as I had read reviews which said the trip hadn't seen any animals, but this was not the case on this occasion. Dolphins were surrounding the boat and swimming along side us for a long while, and the whales came within 10 metres of the boat (some a lot further away, they are fairly unpredictable)! Great tour, worth every penny. Excellent crew and very informative commentary, provided info about the area and lots of facts when there were no animals around to look at. Food and drink available to buy on board was an excellent addition!Reviewed by: Christopher J, September 2013
A few whale and dolphin sitings, but I understand it was not prime season. Nice tour.Reviewed by: Lynford G, February 2014
Had a great time on this trip, the dolphins where amazing. Only disappointment was not seeing any whales but the dolphins made up for it. Great boat trip. Would do it again if I come back to Auckland.Reviewed by: Jane B, January 2014
