Only 3 stars as we did not see any whales and very few dolphins - Nice boat ride, knowledgeable and accommodating crew, but disappointing that we did not see more. We were given a free ride coupon to come back again, but am not planning on visiting Auckland again.
Unfortunately, we spotted only two pods of dolphins after about 3 hours at sea. We received a voucher that allows us to come back again - whether or not we will be able to use that voucher is debatable, as we live in the UK and we were only in Auckland for a couple of days. The crew were very good and the boat was clean and comfortable.
Amazing trip where we saw plenty of dolphin swimming with boat. Managed to see two whales even if on the day they were not friendly enough to come over to the boat. Great boat and crew and had excellent weather
We saw so many dolphins and we were lucky enough to spot a whale as well. It is a long trip to and from and I would suggest taking snacks. We were pretty hungry by the end. They do have a small snack selection, but not enough for what we wanted. Overall though it was amazin.
The crew was polite and knowledgeable. We did not see whales, but we did see some dolphins. The captain tried very hard to find whales, but to no avail. We did receive vouchers to use another day. The vouchers have no expiration date so they can be used on another trip.
Sadly no whales on our trip but hundreds of beautiful Dolphins, some penguins and wonderful bird life. The trip was fantastic and worth every penny. There was an informed and engaging commentary at appropriate moments and the boat's crew made every effort to make the trip an enjoyable one. One can't blame the crew for the ignorance of some of the passengers who blocked the view of many folks and seemed to be under the impression that the trip was solely for their benefit. Nevertheless, this cruise is highly recommended. Even without an appearance from passing whales the cruise is fabulous.
