Dolphin Day Trip

Our day trips depart from Tauranga at 8.30am. You will be advised where our departure points are when you book and can download a driving-directions map on our website here.

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 vessel.

On the day, we’ll provide you with a wetsuit, snorkelling equipment, morning tea, Additional refreshments are also available throughout the day.

Even though our primary goal is to find dolphins, you may also see a wide range of other marine and bird life on your journey. The surrounding scenery includes several beautiful offshore Islands; Matakana Island, privately owned and largely unpopulated, Karewa Island, a wildlife sanctuary and Motiti and Major Islands, home to a marine reserve.

To ensure maximum comfort and personal safety we advise you to bring sunscreen, a hat and warm clothing. Don’t forget your swim wear and a towel - and don't forget your camera!

For this season DolphinBlue starts Operations from the 3rd of December 2021 onwards.
