This was a great experience. Our initial date had to be rescheduled due to the weather but we were re-booked for the following day without any problem. The tour itself was wonderful - spectacular surroundings, and we were escorted by a pod of Hectors dolphins most of the way back. Lots of useful information from the very knowledgeable guide. Definitely a must do if you are in Akaroa and love the water and being in the outdoors. Highly recommended!

Two fantastic tours: kayaking in the morning and the lava loop on ebikes in the afternoon. The kayaking was great with a small group and our excellent guide Hazel, who was knowledgeable, competent and a pleasure to be with. Then Hazel took us on a great loop on ebikes where we got amazing views and some interesting local history. Again, a small group and a great tour. And the ebikes were great fun. Would definitely recommend.

We had a bit of a false start as the weather meant we couldn't do it on the original day but worked out for the best as we had a perfect morning! The views are stunning. Hazel is an excellent guide and patient with the less experienced in our group.
