E-Ko Tours are Marlborough's premiere wildlife specialists. We offer a variety of fully guided tours in the world-famous Queen Charlotte Sound. On every tour you will see multiple endangered species and part of your fee goes back to helping our local endangered species.

Our knowledgeable skipper and qualified WCA guide will provide you with fun and informative commentary about the conservation, culture and history of this beautiful place we call home.

Our tours get you up close and personal with dolphins (5 different species), NZ Fur Seals and a variety of rare and endangered bird species, including penguins! Explore the stunning Motuara or Blumine Island Bird Sanctuaries and be amazed at the breathtaking views.

Dolphin Swimming & Viewing - please note our minimum age to swim is 12 years old. NO age limit for Dolphin Viewing which is one of the best in New Zealand as we can view the rarest and smallest Hectors Dolphin which live in the Marlborough sounds.
