Bay of Islands is a home to a lot of New Zealand's marine wildlife species thanks to its location and warm climate. You'll spot many different species of animals in the Bay of Islands, and a lot of them are native to New Zealand. Wild dolphins can be spotted year round, often with juveniles in their pods, and you may also be lucky enough to see migratory whales on board one of our cruises!
