Added to WikiCamps today after going on the Akaroa Harbour Nature Cruise today! We loved, both of us are 30 and enjoyed it all. Good sized vessel, plenty of space. We saw fur seals, plenty of birds, beautiful scenery and the elusive Hectors Dolphin! The skipper and crew and booking team were really friendly and knowledgeable. Free tea, coffee and water on this 2 hour cruise. It did get quite bumpy when we went out into the Pacific, but that's expected. Wrap up warm. Would highly recommend it! Brilliant! We paid just $59.00 each via
