Akaroa Lighthouse

On the 4th of October in 1980 one of our most iconic landmarks in Akaroa, the Akaroa Lighthouse, completed its move from the Akaroa Heads to its present location in the township.


Cruise Highlights

Let our crew, including our dolphin spotting dogs, take you on a journey of discovery. Enjoy the fascinating history and amazing wildlife of Banks Peninsula aboard our stylish vessel.


Meet our Dolphin Spotting Dogs

An integral part of our team at Akaroa Dolphins is our expert dolphin spotting dogs. We have 4 dogs; Albie and Buster as our main dogs, Moana in training and Jet who is retired, but available if needed.The dogs have their very own roster, taking turns working, one at a time. They are on the boat equipped with dog life vests, ready to spot some dolphins. They each react in their own individual way, indicating that we are close to the Hector´s dolphins. Apart from this important task, their job is also to enjoy all the petting and hugs from the crew and passengers onboard.
