Experience the best of New Zealand’s wildlife, scenery and hospitality on an Akaroa Dolphins tour. Our passionate, family-led team will take you on an epic adventure that treats you to everything our region has to offer.


Meet the world’s smallest & rarest dolphins

Found in the shallow coastal waters of the South Island and native only to New Zealand, Hector’s dolphins are a local taonga (treasure).

We are fortunate to have multiple pods of Hector dolphins living in and around our bay and they’re just as curious of us as we are of them, popping up often to say hello.

Enjoy spectacular coastal scenery and historical marvels

Rugged cliff faces and dramatic panoramic views will take your breath away as we show you the highlights of our local area.

You’ll see the highest cliff in Banks Peninsula, the famous “Elephant Head”, as well as stunning Cathedral Cave, all from the comfort of our fully equipped luxury vessel.

It’s the little touches that make the biggest difference

Our boat is no place for sardines - we give you plenty of room to move and view the dolphins without jostling for space.

We also provide a range of complimentary drinks, including local wine, beer and non-alcoholic beverages. Our home baking is the proverbial icing on the cake - a personal touch we’re renowned for.
