Meet the Team

Akaroa Dolphins were founded in 2004 by Hugh and Pip Waghorn. With daughter Julia and son George joining the family business in 2015. The team today consists of 12 dolphin and boating enthusiasts, as well as four dolphin-spotting dogs, who cannot wait to meet you and show you the beauty of Akaroa harbour!


Adopt a Dolphin

We spotted this incredible dolphin last week. He has been given the name 'Fingers' due to the unique markings on his dorsal fin, which most likely came from a shark attack. Fingers is one of the most highly distinctive dolphins in the NZ Whale & Dolphin Trust ID catalogue.
