Colouring Competition

Last week we saw this inspiring colouring competition so we have decided to do something similar for our followers/fans. The rules are simple, get colouring, post a picture of your child's or your own finished piece on either your Instagram grid or Facebook wall with the hashtag #AkaroaDolphins and tag @AkaroaDolphins to be in to win a FAMILY PASS on our cruise.


The life cycle of a White-flippered penguin

The White-flippered penguin is one of the smallest and rarest penguins in the world. It is endemic to Canterbury, New Zealand and breeds only on the Banks Peninsula and Motunau Island, where there is roughly around 4000 pairs nesting.


The life cycle of a New Zealand fur seal

The New Zealand fur seal, also named “kekeno” is the most common seal in New Zealand. In the 18th century, these seals were hunted by European sealers for their fur and blubber, which almost drove them to extinct. Since 1894 the NZ fur seals have been fully protected by the Marine Mammal Protection Act. Today there are more than 200,000 fur seals and they thrive around the rocky shores of New Zealand.


Top fish found around Akaroa & Banks Peninsula

When recreational fishing in and around Akaroa harbour it is important to read up on our fish size regulations and where our two marine reserve boundaries are. Planning for a fishing trip is important as well, with our changeable weather, sea conditions and tides, we suggest speaking to a local to find out where’s best in different conditions.
