Trip Information

Our aim is to provide you with a safe, informative and memorable experience

Swimming with Dolphins
Because it’s important to us that you know what to expect on our trips, we have explained how Dolphin Blue interacts with dolphins.

Where we depart from:
We depart from - Pier 3 Wharf Street, Tauranga.

What we provide
On the day, we’ll provide you with a wetsuit, snorkeling equipment, morning tea and beverages throughout the day.

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

Other things to know:

  • We do travel outside Tauranga harbour to find dolphin.  This means we will be in the open sea, where conditions are not as calm as harbour boating.  Keep this in mind when preparing for your trip.  You may consider taking seasick pills before your tour commences - they are most effective when taken prior to the start of a tour however keep in mind some do make you drowsy.
  • Safety is paramount onboard Commander I and we provide lifejackets to all passengers should they choose to wear them. 
  • Dolphin are not predictable, they are not in the same place everyday at the same time.  Patience is required in locating them and this may take a good part of the day.
