The wind was blowing a gale and the seas very rough but it was a good little cruise. Not many dolphins but we saw seals on the rocks and a pair of penguins
Unfortunately, our cruise was cancelled when we arrived on the dock on our day as the waters were considered too rough and high winds. I rate the cruise a 5 star anyway as I know it would have been great.
Black cat were brilliant due to traffic problems we arrived late and they put us on the swim with dolphin cruise instead. we had wonderful views of hectors dolphins and penguins swimming alongside boat for almost the entire trip.would recommend this company for both harbour cruise and swim with dolphins.
Akaroa Harbour is a very nice place to visit if you are in Christchurch. We rented a car and drove 1 and 1/2 hours from Christchurch to Akaroa. The view along the journal was spectacular. The cruise was great and we did manage to see penguine and dolphins on that day. We were given a nice post card to remember after the cruise. We had a great trip.
Akaroa is a very beautiful place. o go there and not do a cruise and see the hector dolphins would be a big miss.
The most amazing trip. Saw LOTS of Hector dolphins, seals and one penguin. Would recommend highly.
A thoroughly enjoyable harbour cruise on a modern vessel with excellent commentary from the captain. We saw numerous Hector Dolphins, who delighted in swimming all around the boat, a penguin and some seals, as well as lots of birdlife. On a cautionary note, the sea can become very rough near the harbour entrance into the Pacific Ocean.
