The days highlight is a journey of discovery aboard a luxury vessel as you come alongside rare Hector’s dolphins, NZ fur seals, seabirds, and other wildlife set amongst spectacular sea caves & volcanic formations. Allow a total journey time of around 9-10 hours from Christchurch return: includes travel through the breath-taking scenery of the rugged Banks Peninsula.
Your tour is fully inclusive with provision of morning tea, an afternoon platter with wine tasting, hotel pick-up and drop off and road journey courtesy of an ultra-modern luxury mini-coach. During the cruise enjoy a complimentary drink of award-winning wine, beer or non-alcoholic option and home baking.
Also, over the course of the day, you will have a around 3 hours spare time to wander in and around the French-inspired Akaroa township and surrounds at your own pace. Stopovers include the award-winning Barrys Bay chees factory at Duvauchelle and the quaint Little River Café and Art Gallery.
