My parents and I went on the 75 Minute Ocean Safari and it was the perfect way to 'dip your toes' when you arrive on the Island (great for all ages too). Clem and Elijah were fantastic, offering some interesting information about the history of the island as we passed some significant landmarks. We had ample time to watch the gorgeous (and very cheeky) fur seals and spotted lots of birdlife too. Sadly, as Clem put it, "The Dolphins didn't get the memo." However, this is obviously out of anyone's control and it certainly didn't make the trip any less enjoyable! I really appreciated that they added some more excitement to the trip, taking the boat over the wake from the ferry and adding a little surprise at the end of the trip too!

Brilliant Dolphin cruise with a sensational skipper, Illija! He was great with his enthusiastic and informative commentary, and took us straight to a pod of 30 Bottle Nosed Dolphins with babies which came up right to the boat! Then he took us to watch some NZ Fur Seals sun baking and also found 2 nests with Wedge Tailed Eagles in them. The weather was superb and the cruise even better!

Our guide Elijah was great explaining everything well. Fantastic experience with a seal claiming my daughter and I by repeatedly swimming around and beneath us and looking us in the eyes. Absolutely surreal ! Many seals watching us from the rocks and 1 sea lion lazing there too. Our boat captured the attention of a pod of dolphins that circled, jumped and dived under at close range.

Very good guide with lots of information very helpful turning the boat around so all could see the Dolphins played lovely in front of use

Nice trip along the island with dolphins, rare birds, seals and good explanations from the friendly and competent crew.
