The Vessel

A classic Kiwi-built vessel that provides comfort and safety at sea

Those who know boats will appreciate Commander I as a classic. At 54 feet, she was built in 1967 using native New Zealand timbers and employing the finest craftsmanship.

Commander I is well set up for swimming with dolphins, observing marine-life or can be used exclusively for fishing.

Onboard, her character is one of comfort. She is spacious with large windows, plenty of deck space and full amenities - perfectly suited to relaxed cruising, allowing you to fully enjoy being at sea.

"The boat is elegant and so spacious it seemed like there was no one else on board. The crew were welcoming, easy too talk to and provided interesting information about the wildlife, local history and Maori legends.

Our day at sea with Dolphin Blue was great and we would highly recommend it to everyone, it was an awesome experience.”​
