Swim with the world’s smallest and rarest dolphins in Akaroa Harbour. See these beautiful marine mammals up close in their natural habitat.
Hector’s Dolphins are found only in the shallow coastal waters along the western shores of New Zealand’s North Island. They are rare and are an endangered species. These dolphins have distinct black facial markings, short stocky bodies and round dorsal fins.
Akaroa Harbour is a sheltered harbour, a flooded crater of an extinct volcano surrounded by awe inspiring volcano cliffs. Enjoy cruising the harbour in a heated jet powered catamaran. You’ll learn how to safely interact with the dolphins from the highly trained crew. You’ll be in a small group to insure an intimate experience. You will need to bring a swimsuit and a towel. Then don your wetsuit, mask and snorkel and go swimming.
After your swim, you can get a hot shower on board and a warm drink. This will truly be a once in a lifetime experience!
