This excursion was really fantastic. It was a beautiful day and we were able to see so many animals. There were even mom and baby dolphins! That was such a treat. We got to see young fur seals frolicking on shore. And the penguins are so small and cute. I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed this harbour sail. It was certainly a highlight for my trip.

Ollie and Jenny were great to sail with. The wind was good, and the dolphins came to visit. Suggest layers, sunscreen, and shades!

My partner and I booked on for the afternoon sailing. We enjoyed a sail around Akoroa harbour and saw a playful pair of Hectors dolphins and plenty of waterfowl including a penguin late afternoon with storm approaching. The boat holds about 17, there is not alot shade above deck, so carry sturdy hat, sunscreen, water. Both sunscreen and water are available if you ask. As we returned to dock, winds were picking up from an approaching Southern storm. Great cloud wall as well sailed out on Celebrity Solstice.

A real Harbour Sail, a trip together with good friends, on the beautiful waters of Akaroa Harbour. We had such a good day, perfect weather and a perfect experience. The sailing yacht was beatiful, Oliver was very competent and we so enjoyed being on the water. The photos actually speak for themselves :-)

This was a very informative trip led by a person who was so enthusiastic about the wild life and fauna - very knowledgable and informative. The trip was very comfortable and well organised with a drink provided - alcoholic or non-alcoholic. Would definitely recommend
