Make a date with the world’s smallest, rarest, and friendliest dolphins at the beautiful and sheltered Akaroa Harbour. Akaroa lies inside the eroded craters of an old volcano, now flooded by the Pacific Ocean. Akaroa Harbour boasts stunning coastal scenery and is home to hector dolphins, New Zealand fur seals, and white Flippered penguins. Enjoy a two hour cruise onboard a large, comfortable catamaran where you’ll have the opportunity to view the local wildlife. Your skipper will provide fascinating commentary about the wildlife as well as stories of local legends and history.
Bring your camera to capture stunning coastal scenery and amazing wildlife.
The Akaroa Harbour Nature cruise departs directly from the tender pier..
Although every effort will be made, dolphin sightings cannot be guaranteed. Dolphin season in Akaroa is between December and April
