We stayed for 2 nights in Akaroa, after our arrival we visited Akaroa Isite and we got all the informations about the local area (hikes, harbour cruises, penguins tours..) the first day we have done the recommended track around Stony Bay Peak, definitely best spot in Akaroa! The day after we came back to the Isite shop and young lady helped us with the booking, she was very informative and patient! The same day we also booked with the lady Penguins Evening tour, we were so lucky, cause they had last 2 spots!Akaroa is special because of the dolphins and blue penguins, so definitely worth to book these tours! If u r not sure which one GO TO THE ISITE AND I AM PRETTY SURE THEY WILL HELP U OUT!

Staff are super friendly they go above and beyond! Having never been sea kayaking before they gave me all the information i needed and reasured me that my tour provider would explain everything in full detail when we got there to. I found filling out the paperwork a little difficult having got dyslexia, no problem for doreen, she calmly and kindly assisted me. Overall a brilliant experience through and through! An absolute must when in akaroa!
