Akaroa Harbour & Dolphin Cruises
Let Akaroa Dolphins take you on a journey of discovery through millions of years of fascinating history and natural heritage on board one of our Akaroa Harbour cruises.
Akaroa Harbour is home to amazing bird life and sea mammals, including the world’s rarest and smallest dolphin, the friendly Hector’s dolphin. Our specially trained skippers and dolphin dogs are experts at finding these elusive but charming dolphins. You will also see fur seals sunbathing on the rocks, little blue penguins, marine salmon, mussel and paua pearl farms, along with a variety of captivating sea birds, all in one harbour cruise.
View wildlife in style on board our luxurious catamaran. Experience what makes our Akaroa Harbour cruise special from the moment you step effortlessly on board. Every cruise includes a complimentary beverage. Choose from our selection of award winning New Zealand wine, beer and soft drinks.
Our vessel ‘Into the Blue’ is fitted with hydrofoils which lift the boat, giving an extremely stable and comfortable journey, and making us the most luxurious cruise on the harbour. The manoeuvrability of our cruise boat allows us to show you all that Akaroa harbour has to offer. Our cruises visit the spectacular sea caves, volcanic formations, high cliffs and bird nesting sites, both within Akaroa Harbour, and beyond the entrance to the Pacific Ocean.
The size of our vessel allows us to offer a personalized experience that doesn’t compromise on space or comfort. Say goodbye to large crowds, and enjoy the freedom to move around our boat, taking in the unspoilt landscape and incredible wildlife of Akaroa Harbour.
