A little bit of history….The love for Akaroa Harbour runs through the veins of Akaroa Dolphins owners Pip and Hugh Waghorn and their local crew. Pip and Hugh’s family history in Akaroa dates back to 1840. Hugh’s cousin, Morgan Waghorn, worked on the first Akaroa Harbour Nature Cruise which operated back in the 1970s and 1980s. The boat he skippered was called “Miss Akaroa” and was owned by George Brassell.
