Very well organized, we sow dolphins and seals. Very cold day but we'll remember it. I'd recommend it.

Enthusiastic guides, very informative and made our experience lots of fun.
Comfortable, exhilarating ride. Complimentary drinks. Friendly, helpful staff. Interesting, reflective and informative commentary. The weather was against us for seeing penguins and dolphins but we loved the seals.
Dolphins, penguins, seals were seen on the boat tour, great waves. Guide made lots of jokes and was cool.
Fantastic boat trip in the harbour. Lots of wildlife and beautiful scenery.
Cruise with boat to explore animals (dolphins, seals, penguins etc....) Few animals seen during the cruise, few explanations and already $80 per person, quite a lot!
Black Cat is very professional and well run. We had an excellent wildlife experience. The boat did not have many passengers so it was very personal. We saw lots of dolphins and the boat was stopped and engines off so that they would come really close. We also saw fur seals and lots of birds. The skipper gave us an excellent and informative commentary on everything we saw, and answered questions we had. It was one of the top experiences of our NZ stay.
Had a lot of fun seeing many dolphins with very nice company and staff.
