Akaroa Dolphins - Itinerary
Akaroa Dolphins - Itinerary We offer an exclusive and intimate 2 hour Harbour Nature Cruise on our luxurious catamaran. We accommodate a small number of guests so you are able to enjoy a more personal cruise experience around the spectacular seascape including sea caves, high cliffs and volcanic rock formations.

Akaroa Harbour is home to the smallest and rarest dolphins in the world, the Hector’s Dolphin. A cruise out on Akaroa Harbour is the perfect way to view these amazing creatures, along with fascinating bird life, seals and penguins in their natural habitat.

We are 100% locally owned and operated. Our history dates back to 1838 and as your hosts we will provide you with a personal insight into this region.

A complimentary award winning wine, beer, organic juice, soft drinks and fresh home baking is included in the cruise price.


NOTE: If there is something specific you would like to view, please inform the crew as they are happy to accommodate requests where possible.
