What an amazing day out on the water! We had great conditions and great visibility. The crew were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The snorkeling was fantastic and dolphins were magical. I could not have asked for a better experience. Great value for a whole day out on the water, would strongly recommend this company to anyone who is looking to do a dolphin swim and would definitely do it again! Thanks everyone and thank you for sharing the wonderful photos

We had an amazing day out. The crew were friendly, nothing was too much trouble, they had thought of everything and made the day really special. Need a snorkel? We got it, wetsuit? Yep! Coffee? Check! Lunch? We have you sorted! Sealegs? Here you go! No swimming with the dolphins this time round due to babies - crew had prepared us for this from the beginning and were extremely knowledgeable about the wildlife. We did see dolphins on the way there and back. Mayor island was stunning for a snorkel with the seals and other marine life. All in all a very memorable day at a very reasonable price too! Would definitely go again.

We had the most amazing experience with the crew at Orca Wild Adventures! The crew were so friendly and welcoming they were also full of knowledge of all the creatures in the sea we saw 3 pods of dolphins. The skipper made sure everyone got a turn swimming with the the dolphins, having to catch up to the pod twice. I would highly recommend anyone to head out for a day of adventure with these guys. Thank you!

What a day, clear skies, calm seas, awesome company made this day the best. We saw dolphins, whales, a seal which amazed us for hours. We saw stingrays and eagle rays while snorkeling off Motiti Island which was beautiful having never snokelled in nz before I could gave imagined how amazing it would be. While this day we didn't get to swim with the dolphins due to the babies hanging with their mumas it was amazing and we will be back to try our luck for the perfect swim.
