Dolphin Seafaris

Watch & Swim with wild dolphins in the crystal clear waters of the Bay of Plenty. Get closer to dolphins, orca, whales and seals on board our comfortable purpose built 50ft power Cat ‘ Guardian’. Trips depart daily from Tauranga. Our expert crew of Wildlife Guides will ensure your trip with us is a great experience for your visit to our region. We supply all gear; wetsuits, masks and snorkels, give a briefing to our swimmers, and also include hot drinks, fresh fruit and a light snack in our prices which are the best around by far. See huge pods of Common Dolphins closer than you will see anywhere playing and just doing what comes natural as you meet them eye to eye in the clear Pacific Ocean. We can happen upon Orca, whales (seasonal), seals, seabirds, penguins and offshore nature reserve islands, it’s an awesome day out. Join us at Dolphin Seafaris for a first class, comfortable cruise!
