Pohatu Penguins offers unique nature and sea kayak tours from Akaroa, New Zealand.
Choose from the top things to do in Akaroa. Akaroa activities offer the chance to experience wildlife and natural beauty on this remote peninsula.
Akaroa is located just 1.5 hours from Christchurch. However, this quaint settlement and remote peninsula is a world apart from the city. Nestled in the sunken crater of an ancient volcano, Akaroa Harbour provides habitat for countless species.
In addition, Akaroa is home to a historic French settlement, evident in the historic buildings in town.
Akaroa is the perfect destination for nature-lovers and travellers who wish to enjoy a slower pace of life. Sample wines at numerous vineyards, taste cheeses at Barry’s Bay Cheesery, and browse the boutique shops in town.
Akaroa Harbour is home to a marine reserve that protects the world’s rarest and smallest oceanic dolphin, the Hector’s Dolphin. These dolphins are found nowhere except New Zealand. If swimming with dolphins is on your bucket list, Akaroa is the perfect destination for this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
However, if you would prefer not to swim, you can still see dolphins and penguins on a harbour nature cruise. View majestic scenery, including volcanic sea cliffs, and spot countless wildlife species.
Akaroa Harbour is home to the Little Penguin, a rare native species. Penguin tours offer a chance to view the local colony and learn about ongoing conservation efforts.
In addition, you can view penguins from the water on a sea kayaking safari in the Pohutu Marine Reserve.
