Auckland Whale & Dolphin Safari

Voyager Maritime Museum,

Quay Street, Viaduct Harbour

 

Tours depart daily at 12:30pm from the Viaduct Harbour in downtown Auckland City. The dolphins don’t wait around so we ask that all passengers please check in at Voyager Maritime Museum no later than 12:15pm prior to the tour departing. One of our friendly guides will then lead you on the short walk to board.

Directions:  Viaduct Harbour is located at the western end (left if you are facing the water) of Quay Street in downtown Auckland. Upon arrival, you will need to look out for the Voyager Maritime Museum entrance to your right immediately after the large ‘KZ1’ yacht.

Things to bring:  Warm clothes, shower-proof jacket, sun hat & sunscreen, camera, binoculars, personal medication (if required), and sea-sickness medication (should be taken prior to trip).

Available on board:  We have a small range of snacks and food onboard, including water, juice, soft-drinks and beer & wine are available for purchase. Please do not bring your own alcohol on board. 

Restrictions:  Unfortunately this trip is not suitable for heavily pregnant women. There is also limited wheelchair access available on the boat, though we may be able to accommodate wheelchair bound people under certain circumstances. Anyone with physical disabilities that require human intervention must be accompanied by their caregivers/support people. Children under 5 years old are only suitable for the trip in reasonably calm conditions and only if closely supervised by a parent or caregiver.
