A friendly, unique and personal Hector's dolphin swimming experience in the Akaroa harbour

Join us for a fun morning out on the water.  Our small boat is ideal for an intimate Hector's dolphin swimming Akaroa encounter!  With only one trip per day we are not in a rush and will take plenty of time to ensure you get the best experience possible.

We will also explore some of the volcanic coastline, including sea caves, and look out for seals, penguins and sea birds.  


We are still operating at the Red Traffic Light setting and only vaccinated people are permitted on our tours. This will not apply to children under 12. Please bring your vaccination passports and a mask when joining us for a trip.

Absolutely loved my dolphin experience organized by Onuku Farm Hostel! Had so much fun during the entire trip, I could not stop smiling. Blue skies, rolling hills, Pacific Ocean, warm breeze & so many gorgeous dolphins! Such a paradise! Thanks to Mafi and Jeff for this amazing experience. Definitely a must do in Akaroa!
