THE ONLY SUPER CRUISE IN THE BAY THAT OFFERS YOU THE OPPORTUNITY TO SWIM WITH THE DOLPHINS
A sensational cruise for dolphin-watch lovers as well Swim with dolphins
What a sensational day you'll have when you join us for a Day in the Bay! When we find dolphins, conditions permitting, put on a wetsuit and try boom netting - a great way to get close to these wonderful creatures even if you are not a confident swimmer. If sea conditions are comfortable (at skippers' discretion) you can free-swim with them! If you prefer to stay on board and enjoy the water antics from above, you are welcome to do so.
See these delightful, curious creatures race alongside and show off their aerobatic skill! Bottlenose and common dolphins are spectacular performers and they love human company. We also often see other marine life such as seals, orcas, whales and penguins. Beautiful Motukokako Island is further out. After a visit here we head for the famous Hole in the Rock. We skillfully navigate our way through and then glide into spectacular Grand Cathedral Cave.
