Located on the east coast of the South Island, Kaikoura is one of the most picturesque places in New Zealand. It is famous for the spectacular marine life that inhabits the coastline including whales, dolphins, albatross, penguins, fur seals and Orca.
Encounter Kaikoura has been providing boat tours to swim with and watch the dusky dolphins and other wildlife since 1989. The business is owned and operated by three local business partners with a passion for the rich environment in which they have lived in all their lives.
The Dolphin Encounter specializes in providing an exhilarating experience of swimming or watching wild dusky dolphins in their natural environment off the Kaikoura coast.
