Photo: Dolphin Swimming New Zealand

To be swimming with a dolphin is an experience of a lifetime and something that tours in the Bay of Islands on the North Island of New Zealand offer.

A large net or boom net is used off the side of the tour boat that lowers passengers into the water so that they can go swimming with the Bottlenose Dolphins in the Bay of Islands in New Zealand. The boom net is an excellent way to get close to the dolphins especially if your swimming skills are not up to par.

The people are extremely excited as a dolphin swims by the net to see what all the commotion is about. The dolphins seem to really enjoy the human encounters and humans seem to have a great time swimming with the dolphins.

As long as the weather cooperates and the sea conditions are tolerable, tourists can go swimming outside of the net and meet a dolphin face to face. A dolphin is one of the most curious, energetic and aerobatic creatures in the sea and this type of experience is one you do not want to miss out on, this is one of the greatest New Zealand attractions. ... continue below the picture...

This type of excursion is first-rate for dolphin lovers while visiting the North Island of New Zealand and it is not a huge surprise if you see other marine mammals. Orca, seals, whales and penguins are a few of the other type of sea life you may also get a chance to see while touring the Bay of Islands.
