Dolphins in the Hauraki Gulf
We see dolphins on over 90% of our safaris!
Dolphins often choose to swim alongside our vessel and ride the bow wave. This is a spectacular sight as they leap in and out of the water. In the Hauraki Gulf, you’re most likely to spot either the common dolphin, the bottlenose dolphin or orca (which actually belong to the dolphin family). From time to time we may be be lucky enough to spot oceanic species of dolphins such as pilot whales and false killer whales.
