Full-day Akaroa Tour with Penguins Safari and Wine Tasting

1 review
Take time out to connect with nature and delight in a nature safari encompassing the wild penguins at Flea Bay. How peaceful is that! To complete your day, enjoy an end-of-day wine tasting (or non-alcoholic beverage) and afternoon platter at the very special French Peak vineyard.. Your journey to Akaroa takes in the stunning scenery of the rugged Banks Peninsula coastline and farmlands. Stopovers include the award winning Barrys Bay Cheese factory at Duvauchelle, and the quaint Little River Café & Gallery. You can also enjoy wandering around the French-inspired township of Akaroa (during the day, you will have a little over 3 hours spare time to wander in and around at your own pace).

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!
