    We have booked a whale watch tour and didn't see any whales at all and even no dolphins or penguins....That happens, but we got only 20 $ back of 145 $ that we paid. In my opinion it's not fair to sell a whale watching tour and give not even half the amount of the money back, neither a voucher to join another tour to get the chance to see whales!! I am very disappointed and would definitely recommend to look for other whale watching companies in new Zealand that do fair business!!

    Dolphins are tricky and we didn't see many, but we saw the a lot of the rare ones. Very well educated and conscious staff, great boat. Probably wouldn't go again, unless to swim, but a solid do-once tour!

    We had such a great time this morning with Captain Paul and crew on the swimming with dolphins tour. They really went out of their way to show us as much life as possible... seals, dusky dolphins, bottle nose. I sincerely respect and appreciate how conscious they are about what's good for the dolphins too. Seeing them free and wild, giving them space and letting them decide if they wanted to interact made it more rewarding.

    Definitely a highlight of our Picton trip. We got a lot of dolphin time, both in the water and then as the pod followed our boat. Some interesting birds too, but wow the dolphins. I'm glad I didn't know there were orcas swimming around too or I might not have gone in the water! Very knowledgeable staff who took good care of us....cookies, coffee, hot chocolate were free.
