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.

Beautiful experience! Ani and Mafi were very welcoming and friendly! The boat tour was great, with a little group, we saw lots of Hector dolphins, we jumped in the water to swim with a few, we were even got to see caves and seals, all with a tea and cookie break. Thank you a so much for this unforgettable moment !!
