    Black Cat team went over and above to make our cruise a magical memory. As an avid dolphin lover the swimming with Hector dolphins was the highlight of my New Zealand experience. Can not thank them enough.

    Wonderful and beautiful trip! Steve is very experienced and have a good sense of humor. The dolphins are beautiful and amazing beings. The water is cold at 13 degrees but the wet suit is superb. Good taste of cold therapy!

    This was a brilliant trip for the whole family. As a keen conservationist I was impressed with both the knowledge and respect shown to all of he wildlife that we encountered in Akaroa Harbour. The kids absolutely loved the dolphin swim and seeing seals and little blue penguins on the way back to shore.
    This is a small company who have got it just right!
