What people are saying about Akaroa

We were visiting Akaroa from our cruise ship and independently booked this short but informative trip out into the harbour to see the local wildlife. The ship's Tender docked at the same wharf, so finding our departure point was easy. We saw Hector Dolphins, (which were pretty difficult to catch on film) and sailed near the local seal colony. Overall it was an enjoyable way to experience the harbour.

Super boat took us out around the harbour introducing us to a few of the Hector dolphins and many of the seabirds. Then we went out further to sea the caves and geological formations in the cliffs and see the fur seals with their young. Loads of good photo opportunities and a very friendly crew.

We had a really great harbour cruise - saw heaps of hector dolphins and other great wildlife. Really interesting stuff about the volcanic formations. Surpassed our expectations.
