Depart early morning for the Bay of Islands, which is some 230 kms from Auckland, taking roughly 3 hours by coach. Along the way your driver will point out some of the attractions and keep you amused with some light hearted banter.

The Bay of Islands is situated on the East coast of New Zealand and 150 islands are scattered like shells amid a sea of deep blue waters. Popular as a holiday destination and famed across the world as one of the best family playgrounds where safety and pleasure go hand in hand, you will be thrilled by the sheer natural beauty that meets the eye as you approach the area.

Once you arrive in Pahai your dolphin adventure begins as you board a luxury catamaran for a fabulous dolphin cruise on the Bay of Islands.

Wild Dolphins on Bay of IslandsDolphins seem to enjoy the company of humans and interact with people in the water readily. The Bay of Islands has the warmest waters anywhere around New Zealand, so this is the ideal location to join the wild dolphins and swim amongst them.

It has been suggested that if swimmers hum a tune or talk while duck diving when dolphins are near, the dolphin, out of curiosity, will come closer to that person. Now there's something to remember.

Not everybody wants to go swimming with the dolphins, so for those who don't want to get wet, it's great to relax and take photos and lasting reminders of how good it is to see dolphins in the wild.

One thing is for sure, if you love dolphins then this is the tour made especially for you.

Return to Auckland in the evening around 8.00 pm totally satisfied with the Swimming with Dolphins Tour.
