Had the most amazing experience yesterday! Saw probably a dozen dolphins up close (so close you could almost touch...but remember, don't touch the special sea friends). Sunny day, water not too cold. Staff were knowledgeable, friendly and as excited we were. All in all, a beautiful time out.

We did the bird and wildlife afternoon tour with E-ko. It was a wonderful afternoon. The tour guide Tania was very passionate and her happiness and love for nature was contagious. The captain and other staff were all lovely. We had magical weather and were very lucky to see lots of wildlife, including the Hector dolphins and blue penguins, as well as many birds on Motuara.
The cup of tea and wine and mussels was also a nice touch on the way home.

Thank Kase87
