Whales in the Hauraki Gulf

Within the deep blue waters of the Hauraki Gulf, more than 22 species of whales and dolphins can be found

We love spending time with these beautiful creatures when we’re out on the water. We are incredibly lucky to be able to encounter them so close to Auckland city.

The most commonly encountered species on our trips is the Bryde’s whale. Over the 20 years we’ve been operating, we have encountered many other species, including blue whales, fin whales, humpback whales, sei whales and Southern right whales.
