Akaroa Harbour Nature Cruise

2 Hours

Price from £38 per person

Board your Black Cat vessel at Main Wharf, Akaroa, to commence a two hour cruise around Akaroa Harbour. Experience majestic scenery and stunning wildlife and see rare, native dolphins at play. The Hector's Dolphins are friendly and inquisitive mammals who meet the boat most days throughout the year. Their calves can be seen between October and March. There's also the chance to spot the world's smallest penguin, the White Flippered Little Blue Penguin and NZ Fur Seals. The vessel also stops at Lucas Bay to look at a salmon farm. Aside from the numerous wildlife species, see many sea caves and volcanic cliffs, as Akaroa Harbour was once a live volcano.
