Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: A unique journey from the charming shoreline village of Akaroa, up over the rim of an extinct volcano, past spectacular farmland and ocean views, and down eastern slopes to the Pacific Ocean. There, at the foot of one-hundred-metre cliffs, we will encounter an adorable colony of New Zealand Fur Seals, swimming and sun bathing amongst 8-million-year-old volcanic deposits.

“Wonderful world of seals”
Reviewed July 20, 2005

The Akaroa Seal Safari is a great way to spend 2-3 hours in Akaroa. Our tour guide, Paul, picked us up from the Akaroa information centre and drove us through his farm to the beautiful coastline where the seals were (the seal colony is on his property!).

It was wonderful to see the adorable seals up so close and personal without being surrounded by hoardes of tourists (six people per tour).

Paul is very knowledgeable about the seals and the area they inhhabit and gave us an excellent tour. To top it off he even served up hot drinks and a snack at a point where we had a superb view over the ocean!

Great value. Thoroughly recommended.
