It is with immense pleasure that we are able to announce that we have been selected as a finalist in the New Zealand Tourism Awards 2016. As we come to the end of a record season for Black Cat, and one that happened to celebrate our 30 years in business we are all feeling so grateful for everything we have managed to achieve whilst delivering our world class Akaroa Harbour Nature Cruise, Swimming With Dolphins experience and the Quail Island and Diamond Harbour Ferry.
From epic TVNZ wildlife coverage, Quail Island Tree Planting, Akaroa community littler pick ups to the first Akaroa Instameet, to French Can Can dancers on the wharf, to a Big Band birthday bash, to the finals of The Bachelor NZ (uh-hum let's breeze over what happened next), to Akaroa's first Seaweek Blue Cruise, a $1million dollar investment in the renovation and expansion on the wharf and a secret little project we've been working on all this time that will soon be released, amongst many other things.....we've had a fantastic time doing it all!!!!
As much as we'd love to pick up the award itself we're already over the moon and feeling like winners! Thank you TIA for the recognition and selecting us as a finalist. We wish all the best to all of this years entrants and we look forward to celebrating with our team and industry peers at the awards ceremony at The Langham in Auckland on September 29th!
Our 2-hour Akaroa Harbour Nature Cruise takes you on a journey around an extinct volcanic crater to experience majestic scenery and stunning wildlife. Discover rare and playful NZ Hector’s dolphins, native fur seals, penguins and other seabirds!
