Swim with the dolphins and be at one with nature in the calm waters of New Zealand’s beautiful Marlborough Sounds!
Our Dolphin Eco-tours provide a once in a lifetime opportunity to swim and view dolphins in their natural environment.
Get up close and personal to dusky and bottlenose dolphins and you may also have a chance to encounter the very rare Hector's dolphins.
We also visit New Zealand fur seals and spot a variety of seabirds like blue Penguins, Gannets and Shags on the water.
Our knowledgeable skipper and guide will provide you with an informed and interesting commentary on the wildlife encountered along with local history of the Marlborough Sounds.
There is plenty of time allowed for photography, an all important part of many people's experiences here in the stunning Marlborough Sounds.
Trip Duration: 2-4 hours depending on the location of the Dolphins. (Subject to min numbers).

So glad that you got to experience our amazing dolphins Anna! Thanks for your review and we hope that you have lasting memories of pure joy and excitement having experienced one of the most magical adventures possible on our beautiful planet! Best wishes, E-KO Team
Kia ora Michael, Thanks for your review and for understanding that dolphin are wild animals and so therefore may not always be around to swim with. It is unusual when we do not find any dolphin at all, but this does sometime happen and so we do try our best to find other animals to learn about and view whilst our guides tirelessly search for our finned friends. When tours are booked directly through us our refund policy offers a 25% refund when we cannot find dolphin to swim with and a 35% refund if there are no dolphin seen at all on the tour. When you book through an outside agency you receive a discounted fare and we take this into account meaning that you will receive the same percentage of refund of the discounted fare that you paid. Booking directly from our website is the best way to get the terms and conditions listed on our website. Booking through another agency like BOOK ME means that you will receive their terms and conditions. I hope that this clarifies the refund question. Many thanks, E-KO Team
