It's a long afternoon but well worth it. Guides are informative and go the extra mile to find the animals and educate you you about the them and were even prepared to stay out longer for us. Boat is well kept and comfy

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2013

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!
