100% Locally Owned and Operated

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

Personal & Inspiring Experience

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

Amazing Scenery & Wildlife

Akaroa Harbour has incredible scenery due to it’s volcanic history. As well as a wide range of wildlife with Hector Dolphins, White Flippered Penguins, NZ Fur Seals, Albatross, Cormorants, Caspian Terns 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.
