It was simply amazing!!!

The journey was informative with amazing view. We saw dolphins, seal and other wild life. The Captain shared some local history which made me appreciate the journey even more. I highly recommend this activity if you are going to Akaroa.

Fantastic sailing tour

We had a really good time on board. We saw a lot of hector-dolphins, a few seals and little penguins. It was just amazing. The crew was also very nice and friendly. The captain told us something about the history, the land and about the animals, that was really interesting. We spend a bit more than 3 hours on board and we got free drinks at the end. If you feel cold because of the wind, they provide jackets for you. It was a perfect trip and a great experience!
