Best thing I've done in New Zealand!

We were lucky enough to get in the water with adult dolphins, after seeing some wee babies beforehand! (We sailed to a grown up pod before swimming with them). We also saw a leatherback turtle (ahhh!) and a sunfish. Lovely staff onboard, especially Ellie who was always there to make sure people were alright. Cannot recommend this trip enough. Full day trip on a boat that takes its time, giving you a better chance of seeing some of these waters many wonders. Thanks guys! x

Isla We are so glad you enjoyed your day - I will be sure to pass on your special thanks to Ellie - we are very lucky with our crew we know. It was definitely good to find another pod to swim with after we left the nursery pod. It was a double good dolphin day and yes those Leatherback Turtles are very special indeed. We feel very privileged to see them since they are critically endangered in this ocean. Best Regards for a wonderful holiday enjoying the rest of the splendours New Zealand has to offer. Regards Dee

Perfect day in Tauranga!

What a beautiful day with the wonderful Orca Wild Adventures!! Mark, Claire and Pauline were very friendly. They made sure everyone was having a great time on the boat and in the water during the snorkling trip. We got the chance to see somme dolphins, pilot whales (for the first time of the season!!), a nz seal waving at us, flying fish and many other ones... Loved my day out! Would definitely recommend this trip with them if you're in Tauranga!!
