Dolphin Encounter off the coast of Kaikoura - Shared
Kaikoura, Canterbury and the West Coast, New Zealand
Make one of life's dream a reality and not only watch dolphins in the wild but get the chance to swim with them as well, just off the coast of Kiakoura.
This bucket list experience is completely original and how you experience this is up to you, whether you would rather watch the dolphins from the comfort of the boat, or get close and personal with dolphins in their natural habit and actually swimming with them, this adventure accommodates for all. It is important that those who go swimming do have a reasonable understanding and knowledge of how to snorkel, and is reasonably fit as this adventure is quite physically intense, especially if you try and keep up with these gorgeous animals! The tour is about three and a half hours long where if the opportunity arises as it usually does, you can experience the other impressive marine life in the area, even occasionally orcas; don't fear though the spot light won't leave the great dolphins. All snorkeling equipment as well as wetsuits are provided, bring warm clothes, swimming costume, camera.
