We are a small, local family owned and operated wildlife cruise. Join us on our marine wildlife conservation vessel.

On board help to set sails or sit back and relax.Time to take a deep breath and unwind.

Watch for wild dolphins in their ocean habitat. We are only yacht licensed to view wild dolphins in the Bay.

Viewing wild dolphins in their natural habitat is an amazing and wonderful experience.

The Bay of Islands is a unique location for bottlenose dolphins, as it provides them with abundant food and security for resting and breeding and is part of their large home territory.

We are conscious of the need to protect the dolphins and respect their habitat. Interaction with the dolphins is at the dolphinsā€™ invitation. Skippers and crew are trained in recognizing signs of avoidance by dolphins.

A portion of every fare contributes directly to marine mammal conservation ā€“ Protect the future
