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.


Meet the Team

Akaroa Dolphins were founded in 2004 by Hugh and Pip Waghorn. With daughter Julia and son George joining the family business in 2015. The team today consists of 12 dolphin and boating enthusiasts, as well as four dolphin-spotting dogs, who cannot wait to meet you and show you the beauty of Akaroa harbour!


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.


Donating $30,000 towards the Akaroa Hospital Rebuild

During the September 2010 Christchurch Earthquake, our hospital in Akaroa was damaged and had to be demolished. Akaroa Dolphins decided to donate a sum of $30,000 which went directly towards the rebuild. Thank you to all our customers for making this possible and indirectly helping us achieve this valuable contribution towards our community.
