Tour Info and Dolphin Guarantee

This season we are offering our "Dolphin Guarantee" if you do not see dolphins between December 1, 2017 and April 1, 2018. If we do not see any dolphins, we will give you a FREE voucher to come back out with us another day. Trips we don't see any dolphins are rare, however it does happen. We see dolphins 95% of the trips.  We can not guarantee you be able to swim with the dolphins, as we are regulated by the Department of Conservation marine mammal permit.  There are times when legally and ethically we can not swim with dolphins.  However, we do swim with them 85% of the time!  All of our encounters are on the dolphins terms, just the way we like it. It's a completely wild and natural encounter!  We care about your experience and are here to serve!!

Dolphin Seafaris eco tour departs daily during the main summer season from November to May.

Step aboard a purpose-built dolphin-viewing vessel and embark on a wild encounter with the ocean's most fascinating creatures. As the winner of a Trip Advisor Award of Excellence and Qualmark certification, Dolphin Seafaris provides an educational and organic experience that's completely on the dolphin's terms.
