Swimming With Wild Hector’s Dolphins in Akaroa

Play and swim with the wonderful local sealife, without them being cooped up and held in captivity. Here’s a chance to connect with dolphins on a spiritual level, not at Sea World. 

Generally believed to be the geniuses of the oceans, dolphins make a perfect playmate for young and old. Hector’s dolphins are a miniature version, the smallest of all dolphins in fact. Which only makes them cuter. 

You’ll be guided by a team of caring and compassionate professionals whose sole purpose is the conservation of these mini-mammals of mischief. You’ll steadily and respectfully sail out in your catamaran to be hosted by the dolphins in their natural habitat. 

Donning a wetsuit, you’ll dive into the water and wade out to make the acquaintance of these smooth-skinned sea dwellers. Savour every second in an environment that is difficult to emulate anywhere else on Earth.
