Really excellent trip on the Black Cat in Akaroa Habour with sightings of seals, penguins, dolphins and many others.
Great tour. The driver/guide was wonderful the boat trip was amazing - we saw fur seal cubs, dolphins, and little blue penguins. I would recommend this to anyone going to Akaroa.
The travel organiser did not have the minimum numbers required, but organised an excellent alternative. The bus driver was very pleasant, chatty and informative, but did not overdo the commentary. The included meal was generous and fresh and selected from a set menu. The boat trip was well managed with a knowledgeable commentary, and due to the calm weather the boat was able to leave the heads and show us interesting rock formations as well as many seals. The Hector dolphins were busy in the harbor and we had plenty of opportunity to watch them, but photographing them was tricky. I would have liked more time to spend looking around Akaroa, but I still walked along the sea front and did some shopping.
The tour guide of our small group was more than wonderful. She was funny and shared lots if informations and insights with us. It's so great to have a tour guide who is still amazed by what she shows us. She went on the nature trip with us and was excited as we were when we saw a huge group of dolphins playing right next to the boat, as well as a penguin and lots of seals. Highly recommended!
We had an excellent driver/tour guide, and the combination of a beautiful through the Banks Peninsula and our visit to Akora made for a very good day. The harbor trip was spectacular.
The countryside scenery was beautiful and enjoyable. A great place to visit for the day.
Good coach driver, lunch was tasty, Akaroa was great to walk around and a great way to see more of the countryside.
Akaroa is beautiful. Really enjoyed the cruise too.
I loved the bus and habor boat trip to Akaroa. Being disabled and use a walker and my bus driver Shane was wonderful and so helpful and went over and above to make my day very special. The Black Cat Harbor boat staff both at the officegift shop and crew worked very hard to be sure I enjoyed everything. Anyone looking for a wonderful day trip to a beautiful area and the ability to see the New Zealand fur seals, Hector dolphins and the highlight was seeing the Little Penquins swimming in the water. Also seeing the many sea birds and the volcanic cliffs were such an amazing addition to this day tour.
Traveled by motor coach to Akaroa. Stopped at a cheese factory which unfortunately was not producing cheese that day. Akaroa is a small quaint city with reasonably goo tourist shopping. Included in tour optional was lunch at Bully Hayes which was excellent. The real attraction of this tour was the boat trip through Akaroa Harbor. We saw seals, dolphins, and jelly fish. Once we were among the dolphins the crew manuvered the boat to stay with the dolphins. Also brought us within feet of the cliffs to see the seals. Had previously entered Akaroa harbor on a cruise ship and never noticed what we saw on the tour boat.
