What people are saying about Akaroa

Rob was the perfect Tour Guide for this wonderful excursion. His knowledge was spot on and his pride in New Zealand shone through. He was always on hand to answers questions and was an excellent driver along these high and narrow roads. He gave us adequate free time and made sure we were all safe and happy. His personality was very likeable and he seemed to enjoy our company too, which was nice. We were picked up and dropped of well within the time frame, which was reassuring as we had to take tenders into account. Could not fault Rob in any way and would recommend this excursion 100%.

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.

Scotty, our guide, was knowledgeable, fun, witty and helpful. He used his time with us to inform and entertain us, as well as prepare us to maximize our enjoyment at each stop. His knowledge of local history and geography was exceptional and he was disbursed this information with confidence and wit. He read his audience well and tailored his repartee accordingly.

The arrival was well organized and efficient. We were a large group so we had a 50 passenger bus. The driver did a very nice job of keeping us informed and organized. The bus was fairly new and well maintained. The running commentary by the driver was informative and entertaining. The entire trip was very professional and a good value.

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.
