Description

As New Zealand’s only research based marine-mammal operator Auckland Whale & Dolphin Safari have been sharing the incredible resource on Auckland’s doorstep that is the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park for almost 14 years – departing daily at 12:30pm directly from the Viaduct Harbour in down-town Auckland. Thousands of locals and visitors alike have strolled down to our 20 meter, purpose built vessel ‘The Dolphin Explorer’ and been blown away on our daily 4.5 hr marine-mammal eco-safari – not only by the gorgeous views and amazing diversity of wildlife to be found, but also just how close all of this is to Auckland City.

There’s no need to travel far and wide to have a world class wild-life adventure. There’s 4,000 square kilometres of marine park, 50 island groups and thriving populations of Whales, Dolphins and Seabirds sitting right on Auckland’s door-step and waiting for you to explore it!

DARYLL COLLIS

This was a highlight of our trip to New Zealand. It was truly like something out of National Geographic, from watching the gulls diving at speed in the water, to the two whales, to the dozens of dolphins swimming with the boat. Four and a half hours well spent.

At the risk of turning away jaded readers of travel reviews, but this is an activity not to be missed if you visit Auckland - and I truly mean it.

Staff go out of their way to help you see as much as possible. Very knowledgeable, and genuine care for the Gulf and the marine life. Well worth the money and time.
