Akaroa Harbour is the only place on the planet where you can swim with the world's smallest and rarest Dolphins - the Hector's or New Zealand Dolphin. Black Cat Cruises operate a jet-powered catamaran for ultimate safety for you and the dolphins. Everything is provided including wetsuits, masks, snorkels, hot showers, hot chocolate and a free gift pack. You can also watch the dolphins from the vessel.
The historic French village of Akaroa is 90 minutes drive from Christchurch. Here you can cruise around an extinct volcanic crater. Experience majestic scenery and stunning wildlife on daily Black Cat harbour cruises. You'll see the rare, native dolphin - the Hector's or New Zealand Dolphin. There's also the chance to spot the world's smallest penguin, the White Flippered Little Blue Penguin, and other sea birds.
Kaikoura is regarded as the ‘albatross capital of the world’ proven by the number of albatross species which are so easily found off the Kaikoura Coast.
The boat tour known as Albatross Encounter, offers magnificent views of albatross and many other seabird species only a short distance away from land. These giant ‘wanderers of the Southern Ocean’ are a spectacular sight and their grace and gliding prowess will captivate you on a very special level. The mighty albatross with its huge wingspan is an experience you should not miss. Tours are up to three hours in duration and operate daily all year round (weather permitting).
Kaikoura is well known for the rich abundance of species in both marine life and birdlife. Located two hours north of Christchurch, Kaikoura offers a unique range of activities, which allow you to experience nature first hand. Dolphin Encounter operates tours daily (weather permitting) to the dusky dolphins. Whether you swim with the dolphins or choose to simply watch from the boat, you will be amazed by what you see. Dusky dolphins are well known for their acrobatic displays and they will delight you with their energy and brilliance. If swimming, advance bookings are essential as availability of swimming spaces is restricted.
