Half Day Dolphin & Wildlife Cruise - Tauranga
"What a great day out on the water! Brandon and Amy were such wonderful guides. It was a beautiful day and they took us further out onto the ocean than normal because of the calm waters; perfect conditions for sighting marine life. And sight we did! Flying fish, sharks, seals. But the highlight was a school of dolphins which we tracked for some time and finally caught up with. So many and so close to the boat! Jumping and competing with birds for food, then swimming alongside the boat. So much fun, and far beyond expectation. A great day in Tauranga; highly recommended."..."
