About Us


Orca is an ocean going vessel that has been selected as the ultimate boat for both viewing and swimming with dolphins. She is fast, stable and has 360 degree unrestricted viewing. We have customised her for dolphin swimming with a boarding platform and innovative swimbars. These are designed to give you the best swimming and underwater viewing experience, especially for those who are not that confident in the water. Orca comfortably carries 28 passengers plus the crew, making the excursion a  more personal experience where  you get to spend more time in the water with the dolphins.


Mark, your skipper, has worked in the Bay of Plenty running dolphin swimming charters for over 15 years. He has more experience than any other dolphin watching skipper working out of Tauranga and Mount Maunganui. He is at home on the ocean and has a vast knowledge of marine life.

The crew are extremely friendly and fun, their number one aim is to make your day relaxing and enjoyable. They are highly qualified and are passionate about what they do.

Our biggest kick is to see you guys having an awesome day.
