We had a great time using this company. The boat is modern, funky and clean with various seating options. We sat upfront - be prepared to get wet on rocky days - but this was all part of the fun! Very informative throughout and we were also entertained on board by Buster the dolphin-hearing dog. We were given a complimentary drink on arrival (wine, beer or soft) and an enormously tasty home baked cookie during the cruise. A storm had just passed through Akaroa the day before, so we were advised the cruise would be rough (TIP: If you are prone to sea sickness, purchase some Sealegs tablets from the Akaroa pharmacy at least an hour before. Worked wonders for us and ensured we enjoyed the cruise, no matter how rough the sea was). Because of the weather conditions, the route was slightly limited but we still saw plenty of seals and geographical sights. We did catch a short and unexpected glimpse of a dolphin - they just didn't want to make a big appearance that day - which is apparently quite rare. We would definitely use this company again. Great value and excellent customer service and communication to ensure the cruise still went ahead safely, despite the lingering bad weather.

Amazing and super friendly staff. Free drinks and cookies. Family owned. Our guide was really putting an effort in to get us to see some dolphins. We saw lots of em plus seals, penguins and albatross. Definitely worth the money.

Absolutely pleasant experience. They provide complimentary wine, beer, soft drinks and cookies as promised. The crews are informative and friendly. The cruise is comfortable with toilet on board. The Dolphins are lovely and they happily swim around the cruise. Highly recommended.

Awesome trip, you have to be patient, it took us three attempts to swim with the dolphins but well worth the wait.

Wonderful cruise, nice people, we saw dolphins and seals. We loved Hector, the dog on the boat, He barked when he saw or heard dolphins - so cute.
