Whale Watch® is New Zealand's only marine-based whale watching company offering visitors an exciting up-close encounter with the Giant Sperm Whale all year round. A 95% success rate means a guaranteed 80% refund if your tour does not see a whale. Whale Watch tours are extremely popular so early bookings are recommended.
Designed for whale watching, the company operates a fleet of modern catamarans equipped with engines that minimise underwater noise and toilets that never pollute the sea. The main passenger cabin is enclosed and large outside decks offer great viewing and photo opportunities. Spacious air-conditioned interiors are fitted with comfortable seating while large plasma screens display award-winning marine wildlife animations.
Passenger numbers for each tour are kept well below vessel carrying capacity to ensure your tour experience remains a personal one.
Tours scheduled 7.15am, 10.00am and 12.45pm all year. An additional tour is scheduled at 3.30pm during summer months
