Great trip...we only saw dolphins but they honored their promise to a free cruise any other day to see whales...great staff and captain!! Highly recommend as it was great fun for the whole family
I heard of Viator through the Five Hundy by Midnight podcast. They raved about the quality of your tours, so I thought I would give it a try. I was blown away by this tour! The crew of the ship, were professional, cordial and guaranteed we would see Dolphins. And boy did we ever. I was awestruck by the number of dolphins we were surrounded by. There must have been 500 of them all around the boat. Fantastic tour. I would take this tour again if I was ever back in the area.
Skip and his crew were very professional and informative. We saw hundreds of dolphins and penguins. We were told and taught many interesting facts about the ocean and the waters surrounding NZ. Skip and his crew were great at tracking where we would see the marine life. Sadly, Curious George, the whale, did not visit us. But Skip gave everyone on board a free life time pass to return to try to see Curious George.
great seeing the dolphins

Great experience! The crew on he boat were informative, friendly, and fun. We saw tons of dolphins, some penguin, and birds but no whales. As a result they issues everyone on the boat a free voucher to come back to try and see whales.
The trip was fantastic, we saw dolphins........but not enough to please the skipper, so we now have a lifelong voucher to go again.
A very nice touch.
A well worth touring, we see several whales, very big one, swimming elegantly in the ocean. And hundres of dolphines.
Brilliant, no whales but hundreds of Dolphins. Crew were knowledgable and looked after everyone well. Only problem I had was that Viator had booked me under a name I had never heard of even though my voucher had the correct name.
Fantastic! We had a wonderful afternoon on board the whale and dolphin safari boat. We didn't see whales but did see a pod of over 200 dolphins swimming under and around our boat. The dolphins herd the fish into a ball underwater and then the Gannets hundreds of them are also there feeding and dive bombing for fish. We felt like we were on a National Geographic excursion. This trip was a top highlight of our trip to Auckland. Professional staff and crew and very friendly and informative. Lots of time to take pictures and take in the wonderful scenery. A most pleasant and relaxing excursion. Viator was a great way to book.
I would recommend to anyone, the crew are incredibly helpful and knowledgable. They are great when it comes to tracking and really know what they what they are doing, we saw byrdes whales and common dolphins as well as feeding frenzies. They dont harass the animals and teach you about the ocean.
