Listed in the Lonely Planet guide as one of the 'Top 10 Marine Mammal Experiences in The World' this video of Black Cat Cruises dolphin swimming trip in Akaroa sums up the beauty of the extinct volcanic harbour and it's very precious endangered inhabitants.
Akaroa, which is only a 90 minute scenic drive from Christchurch, is the only place in the world that you will encounter the Hector's dolphin. They are the world's smallest and rarest dolphin and to swim with them in the wild, in their natural habitat, and on their terms, is truly a once in a lifetime experience.
We only book 12 swimmers per vessel to keep numbers low and increase the up close and personal dolphin encounter. We also offer wetsuits and snorkels, hot showers and operate from enclosed vessels for your comfort and safety.
