Our swimming with dolphin day trips depart from Tauranga at 8.30am & returns between 3-4pm. You will be advised where our departure points are when you book.
We don’t have a fixed course; it all depends on the weather and on where dolphins may be found on any given day. Our main objective is to locate and swim with dolphins!
Our vessel has been fitted with a swim rope to hold onto while in the water. Dolphins will dart, dive and swim around you as you are towed slowly along behind our boat, Commander I.
Even though our primary goal is to find dolphins, you are also likely to see a wide range of marine and bird life on your journey. The surrounding scenery includes several offshore Islands; Matakana Island, privately owned and largely unpopulated, Karewa Island, a wildlife sanctuary and Motiti and Mayor Islands, home to a marine reserve.
