Swimming with dolphins?

Dolphins are some of the earth's most fascinating creatures and in the Bay of Islands they’re there all year – except the day I went looking!

The weather is overcast as we board the Great Sights Dolphin Eco-Experience boat and, despite this area having the warmest waters in New Zealand, I don’t have my swimming gear for swimming with the dolphins even though this tour includes a free swim with dolphins!

NOTE: In New Zealand, swimming with dolphins in the wild is subject to the Department of Conservations’ rules and regulations and the skipper’s discretion.
