Bay of Plenty
Bay Of Plenty, New Zealand
Bay of PlentyMany tourists come to the Bay of Plenty for its dolphin tours—not just to watch the dolphins, but to actually swim with the playful sea creatures in their natural habitat. While swimming with them isn't possible from a cruise ship, you'll likely witness bottlenose and common dolphins frolicking: Hundreds of pods inhabit these waters during New Zealand’s warmest months (November to April). Keep an eye out for whales and seals, too.
