Don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to have an unforgettable swim with Hector’s dolphins, the world’s smallest dolphins which are endemic to New Zealand. In the clear waters of Akaroa Harbor and surrounded by majestic volcanic cliffs, you’ll get to experience an intimate connection with nature in your small group. If you’d rather stay dry, you can still watch these cute marine mammals splash in the water with the other passengers, from the excellent viewing platform of the boat. This is an experience not to be missed if you are in New Zealand, and is even rated as one of the top ten greatest marine mammal encounters in the world by Lonely Planet!
