Choose a morning or afternoon departure for your dolphin cruise and journey into waters rich in marine life, on this unique Bay of Islands day cruise. See dolphins in their natural habitat, learn about other marine life including whales, seals and penguins from your expert crew and dive into an unforgettable opportunity to swim with dolphins in New Zealand. If you love the ocean, this is undoubtedly one of the best things to do in Bay of Islands! Departing either Russell or Paihia, you'll travel out to secluded islands around the bay to look for bottlenose and common dolphins. If the weather and ocean conditions allow on your dolphin cruise, you'll have the opportunity to dive into the warm water and snorkel near the dolphins (additional cost of $30.00 per person). Renowned for their agility, grace and intelligence, delight in this unique experience as you swim with dolphins. Featuring a low outdoor viewing deck, underwater microphone and water jet engines that enhance your dolphin cruise, your boat is smaller than most other tour vessels in the Bay of Islands, meaning you'll enjoy a more intimate experience with the wildlife and natural surroundings. Enjoy learning about dolphin behaviour, the marine ecosystem in the Bay of Islands and the history of the region from your expert crew via informative commentary on board. Your cruise concludes when you return to your starting point in either Paihia or Russell. While dolphins are seen on most cruises, nature is unpredictable. In the unlikely event that no dolphins or whales are spotted during your tour, you will be offered to take another dolphin cruise at no additional cost.
