One thing I love about Kaikōura is the natural beauty around us. From the mountains to the ocean, there’s a bit of everything for everyone here. One special treasure we have in our open sea is the dusky dolphins.
And lucky us – we can swim with them! Thanks to Dolphin Encounters, you can be with these interactive and acrobatic mammals, up close and personal. Some say swimming with dolphins is a life-changing experience, and I definitely agree.
To see them in their natural habitat, leaping around in the water, brings you back to what’s important on this Earth: being present, having fun and taking care of our beautiful planet. There’s something just so special about these creatures.
Dolphin Encounters has been operating for nearly 30 years, so you’ll be in good hands. The team provide you with a wetsuit before you board the boat that takes you out into the ocean. All you need to bring is a swimsuit, towel and warm clothing. Oh, and don’t forget your phones and cameras!
And if you’re not too keen to get in the water, the boats have lots of viewing decks, so you’ll still be in amongst the action.
If you’d like more information, I’m happy to help you.
