100% local owned and operate

We are a small 6th generation family business and we love taking guests out to share amazing experiences on the Akaroa Harbour Dolphin Swimming or Harbour Cruise.

Personal & inspiring experience

We offer a more personal experience with a max. 12 guests per tour on a fun boat. We are passionate about nature and look forward to sharing our big blue back yard with you.

Amazing Scenery & Wildlife

The Akaroa Harbour has an incredible scenery due to it’s volcanic history as well as a wide range of wildlife with of course the Hector Dolphins, White flippered Penguins, Fur Seals and lots more.


We operate from Dalyʼs wharf (the small uncrowded wharf) in central Akaroa, South Island, New Zealand – close to the isite and bus stop.


We run our Swimming with Dolphins & Harbour Cruise tours in Akaroa throughout the summer months, from the 1st of October to the 30th of April.

Did we mention

… we are the smallest operator out here?

Our boat takes a maximum of 12 swimmers at a time making it a very intimate experience in the water. On our Highlights of the Harbour Adventure Cruise we take a maximum of 12 guests as well.

The boat is an exciting, fun, comfortable 12.5 meter Rayglass Protector RHIB (rigid-hulled inflatable boat) with a cabin for weather protection.

Our first priority is your safety.

Secondly and most importantly for you is a good all round experience.
