Auckland's beautiful Hauraki Gulf is considered one of the most biologically and geographically diverse marine parks in the world. It's also one of the world's richest habitats for marine mammals: 22 species of dolphins & whales have been seen in the Hauraki Gulf.
You'll be spellbound by the spectacle of a feeding frenzy involving sea birds, whales, and dolphins and love the small pods of dolphins playing around the boat. You'll be taken to wherever the most exciting whale and dolphin activity is and also shown the most significant cultural and historical parts of this amazing maritime park.
With six years of continued scientific programmes undertaken on-board, the crew are probably New Zealand’s most experienced and knowledgeable.
