Overview

The Bay of Islands Swim with the Dolphins trip with Dolphin Discoveries is a unique opportunity to view these incredibly playful and intelligent mammals in their own world. Take part in this amazing experience in New Zealand’s warmest waters. Swimming beside wild dolphins is something you will remember forever!

Cruise the picturesque Bay of Islands on our bio-fuelled purpose-built catamaran, ideal for dolphin viewing or swimming. Should you wish to swim with the dolphins*, we will provide mask, snorkel, fins and wetsuit. There are outdoor observation decks that will allow you to get up close and personal with the local dolphins.

*Once we find a pod of dolphins, Department of Conservation regulations will determine whether a swim is possible. Swimming is optional; you need to be a confident swimmer.
