Dolphins Encounters Kaikoura

Wildlife Sailing and Cruises Water Activities

Your marine adventure awaits, come and explore it all with us.

Swimming with dolphins is a life-changing experience.  Dusky Dolphins are known to be one of the most interactive and acrobatic species of dolphin.   With one of the highest success rates in the world, this bucket list experience is one you will never forget.

Joyful, social dusky dolphins, frolicking in their natural environment.  Together, you’ll leap and dive through the water, feeling the incomparable thrill, adventure and joy of being truly free.  Once you experience your time with the dolphins, you’ll never forget it.

Dolphin Encounter Kaikoura is New Zealand’s first company to offer swimming with dolphins.  Since then, we’ve built up an unmatchable level of experience, knowledge and insight about dolphins, and the best ways to encounter them in safe, humane and environmentally-friendly ways (not to mention exciting and joyful!).

We’re proud to have introduced many thousands of visitors to the uniqueness of our local environment, and the abundant and diverse marine life that inhabits this very special piece of New Zealand.
