What people are saying about Waitemata Harbour
Unfortunately we didn't get to see any whales on the day that we went out, they simply weren't making themselves available. However, we did see hundreds of dolphins. Seeing dolphins out in their natural habitat is just incredible, it took a bit of time to find them on the day that we were out, but it was well worth the wait. The captain of the boat could not have worked harder to find them out in the open ocean, the whole trip was very professional from start to finish. I would definitely go out again in the hope of finding whales next time.
We did end up seeing pygmy blue whales and a bryde’s whale, along with several dolphins, and even penguins! The crew was extremely well-informed and informative. They took two samples of phytoplankton and zooplankton, and explained their environmental importance. It was an altogether engaging and memorable experience.
Good confirmation day before of booking, good explanations from staff, boat safety and marine biology taught well. Appreciated a complimentary ticket due to only seeing a few dolphins, that was a pleasant surprise.
A great afternoon out. We saw lots of dolphins and whales and the crew were able to pass on great information and obviously enjoy their work.Thoroughly enjoyed this trip
Really great tour. The staff made it amazing as so knowledgeable and passionate about the animals, sea and taking care of our planet. Highly recommendable
