    it was a fairly steep price but at the end of it would have happily paid twice that much - it was wonderful.

What To Expect

Don't miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to have an unforgettable swim with Hector's dolphins, the world's smallest dolphins which are endemic to New Zealand. In the clear waters of Akaroa Harbor and surrounded by majestic volcanic cliffs, you'll get to experience an intimate connection with nature in your small group. If you'd rather stay dry, you can still watch these cute marine mammals splash in the water with the other passengers, from the excellent viewing platform of the boat. This is an experience not to be missed if you are in New Zealand, and is even rated as one of the top ten greatest marine mammal encounters in the world by Lonely Planet!

  • AlyShenzhe* 2 May 2017
    所有的工作人員都非常友好,工作人员解決了我們需要的一切,甚至还提供了禦寒的保暖夾克。兩個小時的旅行,我們去了港灣的一側,在海上經歷了短暫的旅行。返程是在海港的另一邊。看到的野生動物包括海豚、企鵝、海鷗、塘鵝和海豹。總之,是一次非常愉快,非常充實的航行。

    当天的天氣很好。我們看到海豚,企鵝和海豹。工作人員非常友好,给我们提供了許多關於這個地區的歷史的很好的資料。
  • Hon*** 3 Apr 2017
    那天天气真的非常适合坐船旅游,海风吹的让人想飞起来。看着海豚在海上嬉戏,它们一点都不怕生,怪不得说海豚是人类好朋友之一哈哈。很棒的一次体验!
