Full Description

Experience with us and help protect our wild dolphins!

Surrounded by deep blue waters, vivid green islands and diverse wildlife, sailing on Carino NZ our 50ft catamaran is the best way to experience the stunning bay of islands.

We are a small, local family owned and operated wildlife cruise. Join us on our marine wildlife conservation vessel.

On board help to set sails or sit back and relax. Time to take a deep breath and unwind.

Watch for wild dolphins in their ocean habitat.  We are only yacht licensed to view wild dolphins in the Bay.

Viewing wild dolphins in their natural habitat is an amazing and wonderful experience.

The Bay of Islands is a unique location for bottlenose dolphins, as it provides them with abundant food and security for resting and breeding and is part of their large home territory.

We are conscious of the need to protect the dolphins and respect their habitat. Interaction with the dolphins is at the dolphins’ invitation.

A portion of every fare contributes directly to marine mammal conservation and childrens marine education programs – Protect the future

While we are sailing, watch for our local little blue penguins and our crazy diving gannets. Help us gather information about seabird populations, while learning more about them yourself. Citizen science seabird monitoring.

An island stop is included where you can, explore an island, snorkel, and swim at the beach, in one of the world’s most beautiful coastal locations.
