Encounter Dusky Dolphins in a beautiful coastal environment. Kaikoura is known as the best location in the world to encounter Dusky Dolphins; it is not uncommon to see pods numbering from 100 up to 1000 dolphins or more at certain times of the year! Choose between swimming with dolphins or watching the dolphins and their acrobatics from the comfort of our vessels. Dusky Dolphins are famous for somersaults, leaps and ‘synchronised’ swimming; all typical dolphin behaviour! Dolphin Encounter is New Zealand’s most established dolphin swim tour operator and has been offering dolphin tours for 22 years. Advance bookings are essential, especially for swimming as seats are limited for this option.

Duration: Allow 3.5 hours. Season: All year. Operating hours: Up to three tours daily (subject to weather and sea conditions).
