The cruise in Akaroa was great, the beauty of the cliffs caves and rocks combined with the sighting of the seals Dolphins and penguins were perfect for numerous photo Opportunities.

Pleasant cruise within the crater narrated by the captain. The boat was large with inside and outside seating. We saw many Hector’s dolphins which were swimming all around and under us! Also saw several seals and other wildlife. Beautiful scenery too! Our ship was tendered right to the dock where we boarded for this cruise so couldn’t have been more convenient! We did not, however, go anywhere near the fish farm which was mentioned in the tour description. Other than than that the cruise was very enjoyable. Be prepared for some choppy water when out by the outer rim where most of the dolphins were....worth it to see them though!!!
It was cold and windy out on the open water, but I really enjoyed seeing Elephant Rock and the cave. Got great photos with a Sailboat in view. We were fortunate to see a Commercial Fisherman at work. This was a playground for 10-20 dolphins and 30-40 birds - including Albatross. It was a great experience.

We loved this Harbour Nature Cruise. We saw the dolphins (including a baby one!), a few penguins and the seals. The boat was comfortable and well equipped with drinks, food etc and very friendly staff. We had missed our morning booking due to lengthy delays getting off our ship and the staff at Black Cat Cruises were very helpful and swapped us to the afternoon tour instead with no problems at all. We spent the morning browsing around the lovely shops in the harbour town and then did our Harbour Cruise in the afternoon. The cruise is a wonderful way to see more of the beautiful harbour and the wildlife. Highly recommend this tour!
