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!
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!
The cruise was good, the staff were excellent, and we did see dolphins and a whale. Unfortunately that particular day there was rough seas, so a number of people were sea-sick, but the crew did their best to minimise the motion, and assist those feeling unwell. Even with the rough ride, it was well worth the trip.
Very knowledgeable crew, excellent trip. Seasickness was an issue for some passengers, so check the weather if you're susceptible. Hauraki Gulf is a treasure, Kiwis might want to discuss Auckland port expansion.
Excellent trip! The captain made sure to find us some whales even though it extended the tour for them by about half an hour. We really appreciated it! Excellent value for money and a must do while in Auckland!
great crew, taught everyone how to find the whales and dolphins, what to look for. Didn't take long to find plenty of dolphins and 2 whales. Great day well worth the trip.
great crew, great sights, stunning wildlife - it really was an awesome trip
Our trip to auckland was brilliant. The whale and dolphin tour was everything they promised. We were lucky enough to see 2 whales and hundreds of dolphins ... The crew were very informative the whole trip. While in auckland we went to the zoo which was a great day and also went on the jet boat. Great experience also.
wonderful afternoon only marred by the wildlife not wanting to be seen....but, hey, I've a voucher to have another try so that means I'll have to return to Auckland at some time in the future!
Inormative, educative, enjoyable. The crew were excellent. HIghly reccommended.
Seeing dolphins in the wild interacting with the boat was breathtaking.
A few whale and dolphin sitings, but I understand it was not prime season. Nice tour.
