What people are saying about Auckland

We booked the afternoon tour for the 27th Feb and turned out to be very lucky as we quickly saw lots of common dolphins. The crew were all excellent at sharing valuable and interesting information. All of which was presented in a good humorous style. They encouraged questions about their research and ocean and mammals. We then were incredibly lucky to see a Brydes whale for a good period of time. Highly recommend this tour, the time passed very quickly and we were very well looked after

I had an amazing time. I would say 5/5 would love to be back. My only annoyance(slight) was the fact that we were asked to gather up right after getting off the boat for at least 15mins just to get a briefing for the island. I believe a pre-recorded version of this could've been played back on the boat ride itself with any new updates being fed to the crew and them briefing us on our way there.

Loved my day out but was surprised that in the era of coronavirus Fullers had a full capacity of passengers. One of the crew was amused & commented on my ‘gloves’. On our return to the boat that crew member had hand sanitizer offered as we embarked. Yet none was offered as we came on at Auckland.

Experienced informative crew. Saw plenty of dolphins in their natural element at close quarters. No whales as e were told really wrong time of year so no 5 star. Wear sun hats, sun cream and watch out for the wash from bows when they dig in. Listen and learn from the crew.

This excursion was so awesome. The Captain was local and very knowledgeable about the history of the harbor and surrounding areas. The 2 lady crew members were helpful and upbeat. The food and wine was lovely. We really enjoyed the cruise and the ambience.
