Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We had a great trip out with our knowledgable skippers, cuppa tea and complimentary home baked biscuit! Really enjoyed the local knowledge from our 7th gen Akaroa hosts and the boat was super comfy. We saw a number of dolphins, as well as seals and loved learning about the history of the area as well as the unique geography of the cliffs and caves.

    Amazing. Amazing. Amazing!
    Steve and Beth are very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. The small group of people per trip made us feel safe and gave us a nice, cosy experience.
    Got to swim with multiple pods of dolphins, coming right up to us. We had plenty of time in the water (40mins) with dolphins all around us at all times. There were so many! Saw other animals in their habitat such as fur seals too.

    All-round, it was one of the top highlights of our trip.

    Other notes:
    - wetsuits are very clean and dry.
    - boat is clean and safe. spacious.
    - hot drinks and snacks after the swim was yum.
    - part of what we paid goes into the hector dolphin reserve/research.

    We embarked on a two day carry our own pack option and thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of a big first day. Stunning views, amazing weather and some steep climbs mixed with relaxing down hills. The overnight accommodations were fantastic with everything thought of and provided for in the cabins.

    Fantastic tour, very experienced guide. It is lovely to see people so passionate about what they do. Nature is gorgeous. Kids loved to see penguins in their natural habitat. Would recommend and return myself.

    A must do when you’re in Akaroa!. Despite being unlucky with the weather the trip was so interesting and informative. Having visited Akaroa many times before I had no idea about the full history till hearing it from Marie. Her knowledge and passion made this a very unique experience. Thank you

    A nice sailing tour, very friendly crew and interesting wildlife.
    The atmosphere on the boat was very relaxing as there were only 5 people on the boat plus crew.
    Even though our charter was postponed for 1 hour it was definitely worth waiting for it.
    I can definitely recommend it if you are looking for something not that touristy.
