Thoroughly enjoyed this cruise. Saw lots of dolphins, a couple of penguins, seals, a blue shark (which the captain said he had not seen in two years) and very interesting geological features. Captain also did a great job of explaining the various features of the harbor and the history of the place. Because the weather was so great and the sea so calm, the captain took the boat out on the open ocean, which was a nice treat. I think this is a can't miss activity for those visiting Akaroa. Advice: bring sunscreen, a good camera and a light jacket, even if the weather seems to be pretty warm. Wind coming in off the sea can make things colder than you think, and I felt bad for those who weren't properly dressed.
