Auckland Whale and Dolphin Safari - Auckland

This safari is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see dolphins and whales in their natural habitat.

Overview

For over 14 years Auckland Whale and Dolphin Safari have been sharing the incredible resource of the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park - home to resident populations of whales, dolphins and seabirds and visited by a staggering one third of all marine mammal species found on earth. 

Departing directly from the Viaduct Harbour in downtown Auckland, be welcomed aboard their purpose-built research vessel the 'Dolphin Explorer' for an unforgettable 4.5hr eco-safari on the sparkling waters of the Hauraki Gulf. 

Where tourism helps conservation:

As New Zealand's only research-based marine mammal experience they work closely with the Department of Conservation and several universities to combine up-close viewing of whales, dolphins and sea birds with important marine-biology research conducted on board. This allows passengers the chance to encounter, understand and help protect this incredible marine resource.

This safari is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see dolphins and whales in their natural habitat.
