Depart the charming historic French township of Akaroa, just 90 minutes from Christchurch, aboard the large modern catamaran, Black Cat, into the sweeping scenic splendour of Akaroa Harbour. Enjoy your skipper’s fascinating commentary as you discover playful, rare New Zealand Hector's dolphins, fur seals, penguins and many other sea birds.

Visit the startling volcanic formation of Cathedral Cave, and see everything from relics of the area’s Maori and colonial past to a modern working salmon farm of today. Two hour cruises depart daily from the Main Wharf.
