New Zealand Nature and Wildlife

Whale watching and swimming with dolphins are favourite activities with locals and visitors to New Zealand. Experience the joy of watching dolphins play on the bow of the boat or the thrill of seeing a whale lunge through a school of fish or dive to hunt the depths of the ocean seabed. Dolphin and seals may join you on your seakayak excursion or you can choose to dive in and share their environment. Our birdlife can be heard in beautiful chorus in many regions or sanctuaries open to visitors. Learn about our shy nocturnal national icon - the kiwi - and participate in guided night kiwi spotting walks. New Zealand has been described by Time Magazine as an 'ultimate storehouse for discontinued zoological models' due to the direct descendants of unusual prehistoric wildlife including the weta, giant snail and tuatara.
