A pair of Hectors Dolphins in Akaroa Harbour

Akaroa Wildlife – You'll be in 'Wild' Company

Look out for the rare Hector’s dolphins (the world’s smallest) or spot the white flippered penguins bobbing across the waves. See Akaroa dolphins, Akaroa penguins and other wildlife up close. Most often you’ll be surprised to hear penguins calling to each other and dolphins breathing BEFORE you see them! Sea life is drawn to play in the pressure wave created by the unique shape of Manutara’s hull, and the silence as she glides through the water under sail alone. Enjoy an encounter with wildlife, on their terms, without disrupting their environment.
