A Great Experience !

Amazing experience. We swam with Dolphins and Seals. The crew was great, very professional and safe. Definitely recommend
What a fun experience!!

Such a fun day. We got to swim with dolphins and a seal! The staff were great, we took our kids and they made sure the kids were well taken care of, even when they wanted to get back on the boat while we stayed in the water. It’s a bit of a workout and even as experienced swimmers we were worn out at the end, but it’s worth it. We had a great time!!

Hi John I am sorry this happened on your tour. We had a few very challenging tours with the wildlife over the Christmas week but please note this is out of our control. Our staff were doing their best to ensure everyone had a great time on board, but the wildlife were not feeling playful. Thankfully, this has all changed now. I do sincerely wish it had been different. Please note that a refund was made back to the viewing price on your tour. Please call me if this has not occurred. The best place to view current up to date photos are via the KI Ocean Safari facebook pages and Instagram Pages. This will show what the current interactions have been like.

No dolphins or seals and snorkeling was pretty average. Maybe shouldn’t have gone out with the weather being poor and not being able to get to normal spots

Hi, Thankyou for taking the time out to write a review. Wildlife is certainly something out of our control and on occasions conditions are challenging. We have had some absolutely spectacular tours recently so it’s unfortunate this occurred on yours. I did however refund your tour back to viewing price and provided a gift card to come out again. We hope to see you on board soon. Kind regards KI OCEAN SAFARI

Great experience and worth the money
, May 2021
Was a great experience. We got to swim with a lot of dolphins and seals. The guides were both very knowledgeable, accomodating and fun. 100% recommend to give it a shot!
A beautiful experience I will remember forever.

What a way to end our 4 day trip. Couldnt have asked for a better send off then swimming with a pod of dolphins. Its expected that you can not get too close to these amazing animals. Although the gratitude I hold from my experience is something I will never forget. Thankyou to our guides you did an awesome job.
2 hours ocean safari and snorkelling safari tour

Amazing experience! The boat was comfortable and left us with plenty of room and space to see. The staff are very friendly and considerate. We saw wild dolphins, eagles, seals, sea lions, and so many wild animals. This is a must go if you like wildlife and boat rides Dolphins swimming all around us and spent some good time with them, then onto some other local attractions and the seals, we were lucky enough to get a seal swimming with us! Great experience. I love it. Thanks
