I love this place!! Just beautiful. Respect the dolphin ranges advice about areas you can swim in. Very informative talk in the morning. The new, larger resort is lovely and nicely done. Take a catamaran trip with the Shotover Team too, its awesome 😊

Lovely beach & swimming opportunity, good boating trips on offer. Adequate restaurant & bar. Superb views. Good, free dolphin wildlife videos running. Terrible strong winds & too cold to swim, 06/11/18.

The guide was well informed, the viewings were well organised and even the dolphins played their part. The icing on the cake was that my partner was selected to feed a dolphin

This has been a dream of mine to get up close to the dolphins in the wild and it didn't disappoint. The guides were great, explaining all about the dolphins, their habitat, their feeding habits and much more. I feel it was well worth the...More
