Overview
More
If you don't like rushed, impersonal, crowded and expensive tours then Akaroa Sea Ventures is for you. Abundance is the smallest, fastest and most affordable tour boat in Akaroa, which means you can venture further into the caves, closer to the wildlife and see more than on any other boat, for less money. Experience one of the world's smallest and rarest dolphins, the Hectors dolphin. Visit a seal colony and see penguins, albatross and a host of other sea birds.

We were visiting Akaroa on a cruise ship. We had decided since it was such a small town that we wouldn't book anything to do in advance other than possibly a tour of the harbor. Or the bay, or the crater, or the caldera…whatever it...More

We did a 2 hour boat trip with Akaroa sea ventures. The boat takes a maximum of 10 passengers. We were lucky to have only 6 on our trip. The guy who took the trip was friendly, professional and informative about the local area. Because...More
