Match: Dolphin & Whale Watching
This is a very well organised trip, friendly, knowledgeable staff ( Tracy was exceptional, thank you) who really ensured we were safe but able to enjoy being up close with the dolphins and an albatross.
Everything about our visit was amazing; the warm welcome from all the staff, the efficiency of the operation, and - most of all - the wonderful sight of the Dusky Dolphins swimming freely with us in the ocean.

Oscar, our pilot was friendly and professional, we were fortunate to see a sperm whale at close quarters for several minutes as well as an extremely large pod of dolphins which was an unexpected treat.
We also saw a huge pod of delightful dusky dolphins and then soared around the peninsula to get stunning views of the town & the fur seal colony.

Thanks to our pilot we saw 2 sperm whales, a few hundred dusky dolphins and we even got a scenic flight over the peninsula as well, all this on a picture perfect blue sky sunny day.
We are so glad we can here today to take a plane ride with Pilot Taylor to see the whales and dolphins, so lucky to have so much sea mammal sightings today.

Flew out to sea and we found the humpback whale on schedule and after a number of circuits to give both myself and husband great views of the whale we headed south along the coast to try and find dolphins and seals.
We did the extended 40 minute flight, and saw plenty of dolphins and pilot whales, and at the end a large sperm whale that did a full dive with his tail out of the water just as we arrived!

One of the most exciting thing I've ever done and having seen dolphins and whales from boats, this perspective is incredibly unique.
Firstly, everyone working at South Pacific Whale Watch are awesome, friendly and really knowledgeable!
