Great if you like - I mean, really like - dolphins. The trip went well, staff were proficient and competent in explaining the natural history of these dolphins. They emphasized that, as wild creatures in their natural environment, guarantees of behaviour could not be made. In the event we had only limited contact with these mammals and, although this met the terms of our booking, they voluntarily provided a partial refund. If you like dolphins this firm presents itself as knowledgeable and of high integrity. I strongly commend and recommend them.
I found this tour very interesting. The staff were very friendly. We saw several dolphins close to the boat but unfortunately none of them stayed close by so we couldn't actually swim with the dolphins. We got refunded $50 because of that which was great. On the way back we also got some hot chocolate. I'd go again if I was ever in the area again.
Great crew and experience. Met lovely people from all around the world and also met 6 Hector's dolphins! Hot chocolate and a gingernut biscuit on the way back was greatly appreciated. Highly recommend this tour.
We had a great time. The sights are amazing and the guides were helpful. The water was a little brisk, but the wetsuits were fine. The dolphins came around, but weren't very interested in sticking around very long with us that day, but we still enjoyed ourselves. We were very happy with the experience, but the guides said it wasn't a full enough of an adventure and gave us a partial refund! Great experience.
BOOK DIRECTLY. The trip was freat but bookiing via Viatour was a mistake. I didn't receive any information about how fr it was from Christchurch, one hour, and I alsmost missed the tour.It was lucky I had a car. Also Viatour provided no address or directions on arrival and I had to wing it as I was in a hurry and no phone connection.
This was an incredible trip. We got to swim with quite a few dolphins and the guide was very informative. The dolphins were swimming right up to us and then around us. I wasn't scared at all even in the deep water. We were in the water for about 45 mins. You get thick wetsuites so you don't get cold
Amazing experience! Wonderful landscapes to begin with, the dolphins are very social and it's so much fun to have them swimming right next to you! The staff is very enthusiastic and well informed. The water is cold, but the suits really help. Definitely a must-do if you are in the area!
