Me and my partner drove up from Queenstown specifically to swim with dolphins....and boy did it deliver.
We were blessed with great calm seas and blue skies. The skipper and the lead guide gave us more than enough time out on the seas swimming with the dolphins (and singing to them!)
I couldnt believe how many close encounters we got, the dolphins were very friendly and fun to watch.
The encounter kaikoura team were very professional and nice, approachable people.
1000% recommend, great price for a bucket list activity such as this.
