We'll be searching for Dusky, Bottlenose, Common, Orca and the rare Hector's dolphins that frequent this unique area.  Whether it's watching a group quietly cruising along or marvelling at their high leaps, back-flips and somersaults during social bouts, dolphins are a magnificent sight!  

Our Department of Conservation permits allows us to seek out and interact with all species of marine mammals that live in the Sounds. We take you where the wildlife is and provide respectful interactions with these amazing creatures. During the cruise, we're also likely to see NZ Fur Seals and a variety of seabirds (like Gannets, Shearwaters and Penguins).

Once spotted, we’ll cruise with the dolphins for a great close up encounter.  As a DOC / WCA permitted operator, we abide by the rules and regulations established for Dolphin Watching activities. 

The dolphin Watching allows you to get close to the dolphins without having to get in the water! Unlike other dolphin swimming operations around New Zealand where several boats are on the same group of dolphins, we are Picton's only Dolphin Watching operator - that means we're the only boat with the ability and professional staff focused on getting you a close encounter with a group of dolphins. 

We primarily operate in an area of little to no sea swell - meaning seasickness is not an issue for our guests.
