We did not really see dolphins but the guide was really nice and we spent a great time after all. Oh! we saw whales so that made it worth it.

Guide was really friendly, experienced and a lot of knowledge of the sea and animals. We saw a pod of dolphins and did some fishing.

Very friendly crew on board our boat, the skipper Cameron had a very positive attitude and was very helpful with information in general. We got to see a lot of dolphins in their natural environment.

Nice crew and that is the only positive point. We ended up seeing three dolphins and not looking for more. We were supposed to swim with them. It would have been a polite gesture to offer another possibility to catch them.

What a brilliant day we had! Saw so many dolphins and although we didn't get to go free swimming as these dolphins were definitely on a mission, the 3rd time going on the swim bar saw so many under and ahead of us.... so very cool and so well worth the money. The crew are fantastic, extremely knowledegable. People, dolphins are wild animals... you just can't tell what you are going to get on the day. Hubby even wanted to go back out again! This company is very professional and approachable, and really know their stuff. We will be back!!

Me and my dad spend the last day in New Zealand with Dolphin Seasafaris and it was without discussion the best activity we did in New Zealand. Saw at least 60-70 wild dolphins under just 3 hours, The crew was also very professional and kindly, it didnt feel like this origianly touristthing, It was more like a couple of hours adventure. I really enjoy this trip!!!

Regarding Asha's comment I cannot disagree more. What a miserable person you are - you cannot control nature and if the dolphins arent willing to come and entertain you then that's just nature. Everyone takes this same risk.

However, on the day I and my daughter went out we had a great day playing with a pod of aroun 80 dolphins. The weather was great there was great activity and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Even if there had been no dolphins the scenery and the pleasant boat ride would have been more than enough to compensate.
