What people are saying about Akaroa

We had a wonderful tour with Jake. He gave clear and thorough instructions at the beginning and made sure we all understood. He helped us all individually get situated properly in the kayak. On the tour Jake talked about birds, sea life and geology of the area as he pointed out examples. It was all quite interesting and easy to follow. We patiently followed some dolphin activity and was rewarded with one popping up between our kayaks. Jake kept a close eye on everyone to make sure we were safe and having a good time. We recommend this tour and also recommend Jake as a guide.

Beautiful drive out to the farm, with interesting commentary on the history of the area. Once we arrived at the farm, we hand fed the sheep and looked in a few of the boxes for penguins, either young ones waiting to be fed, or older ones moulting. Our guide was extremely enthusiastic about "her" penguins, and the efforts her family has made to protect the little blue penguins. A great way to see the area and support the protection of these little rare birds.

These people are the most dedicated to wildlife that we have met. Their knowledge enguins is first class and at the end of the two hour trip we were still at the bay and rescued a penguin that had come ashore and was in serious trouble that would have died but for their intervention. They then took it to the vet in Christchurch. We had a great 2 hours ( nearly 4 ! ) and recommend everyone to go and suport them.

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.

The kayaking was great, the overall experience was amazing! Only improvement I could suggest is clearer instructions on the pick up point as several of us were at different locations and it was unclear where we needed to meet so we almost missed the bus!
