One of the best trips we took in New Zealand. We got so much information, saw many, many dophins on our cruise as well. The staff was wonderful, helpful, fun. Just great.

We went on this whale watching cruise on the 8th October 2016. All the crew were very nice and seemed to really know their stuff. The commentator had a sense of humour too which was great. We didn't see any whales but we did see a pod of 800-1000 dolphins which was incredible!! Was definitely a great experience.

This trip was fantastic in all respects. The dolphin experience was best ever, and I have been on many whale and dolphin trips around the world previously. Seeing the whales was also wonderful, with the whales coming towards us rather than being wary of us. Great crew, good taking advantage of captive audience to get the environmental messages across. Would not only recommend it highly, but would do the trip again on next visit to Auckland.

The captain was an excellent commentator who extended the trip so that we could see two whales.

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 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.
Thank you.

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.

Great trip, very friendly atmosphere yet informative tool. Saw lots of dolphin and gannet plus one whale, possibly a Bryants. Plenty of room on the boat as only about 30 onboard - the advantage of going in winter. My only small criticism would be that we spent over an hour travelling back at speed and didn't seem to be looking for wildlife on the way. Would happily go again on this trip.

It was simply a fantastic day out watching dolphins, too bad we did not able to see any whales up closed though. Highly recommended for whole family for a day of fun.

My daughter and husband enjoyed it but for me I got sick for the whole trip. I was vomiting all the time . I went on lots of cruises before but I never got sick. So I think the problem is with their ship I think it should be bigger to be more stable. It was a very bad experience and I didn't see anything! But one thing the staff on the ship was very very helpful they took good care of me, they were trying to do their best but of no use.

We had a nice boat ride and saw lots of seabirds. We did not see any dolphins or whales. Just unlucky. The captain was great and very knowledgeable about the region, sea life and seabirds. The boat was nice and the crew was friendly. We did receive a voucher to go on the tour again because we didn't get to see dolphins or whales. We plan to use the voucher in the future!
