Akaroa's Birdlife

For all you bird lovers out there this is the ‘must tick’ list for your visit to Akaroa. From our beautiful little native songbirds to our rarer, larger seabirds. Each and everyone is special in their own way. Enjoy our descriptions, photographs and paintings made just for our readers.


Orca The World's Largest Dolphin

Not only do we see the smallest and rarest oceanic dolphin daily, but we also occasionally spot the world’s largest dolphin - the Orca, otherwise known as the Killer Whale. We get surprise visits from the Orca once or twice a year, and never no when this might be.


Whale Watching in Akaroa

We don’t see whales regularly in or around Akaroa harbour, so we can’t offer whale watching here. However, occasionally we have some rare sightings throughout the year, on our nature cruises.


2019 Hector's & Māui dolphin Threat Management Plan

A Threat Management Plan (TMP) is used to help make decisions around the management of threats facing protected species within New Zealand. The Threat Management Plan is designed to describe the nature and extent of these threats, to then implement strategies to reduce those threats, which are created by humans.
