Unfortunately, our cruise was cancelled when we arrived on the dock on our day as the waters were considered too rough and high winds. I rate the cruise a 5 star anyway as I know it would have been great.Reviewed by: Jesse R, USA, August 2012
Black cat were brilliant due to traffic problems we arrived late and they put us on the swim with dolphin cruise instead. we had wonderful views of hectors dolphins and penguins swimming alongside boat for almost the entire trip.would recommend this company for both harbour cruise and swim with dolphins.Reviewed by: dennis b, January 2012
Akaroa Harbour is a very nice place to visit if you are in Christchurch. We rented a car and drove 1 and 1/2 hours from Christchurch to Akaroa. The view along the journal was spectacular. The cruise was great and we did manage to see penguine and dolphins on that day. We were given a nice post card to remember after the cruise. We had a great trip.Reviewed by: Chris H, Australia, May 2011
A thoroughly enjoyable harbour cruise on a modern vessel with excellent commentary from the captain. We saw numerous Hector Dolphins, who delighted in swimming all around the boat, a penguin and some seals, as well as lots of birdlife. On a cautionary note, the sea can become very rough near the harbour entrance into the Pacific Ocean.Reviewed by: Michael H, February 2012
