  • 10% off 'Black Cat' Swimming with Dolphins

    More

    With Black Cat Cruises you will enjoy a once in a lifetime experience; it's the ultimate dolphin experience by swimming with the Hector's Dolphin. Hector’s dolphins are protected in Akaroa Harbour by a marine mammal sanctuary and our cruise gives you the chance to see these beautiful marine mammals close up in their natural habitat.Hector's dolphins are endemic to New Zealand, meaning that you will not find them anywhere else in the world, and Akaroa is the only place you can take a trip out to swim with them. They are also the world's smallest and rarest dolphin. An encounter with a Hector's dolphin in the wild is truly a once in a lifetime experience. This is possibly why Black Cat Cruises dolphin swim experience is listed in the Lonely Planet guide as on of the 'Top 10 Marine Mammal Experiences in The World'!

    Banks Peninsula is one of the few places you can see one of the smallest marine dolphins in the world. They are less than 1.5 meters in length and can live up to 20 years. Females only have 4-5 calves in a lifetime. Calving usually happens between November and February. The NZ fur seal dives deeper (200 meters) and longer (10 minutes) than any other fur seal. Pups are born in November to January. Back in the 1800's they were hunted to the brink of extinction. Since their protection in 1978, their numbers seem to be recovering. Enjoy Little Blue Penguins (Eudyptula minor albosignata) The white flippered variety.The best place to see these delightful, tiny penguins is during the day, out on the water where they are fishing. At only 25 cm tall, they are the world's smallest penguin. Discover many different Seabirds Terns, gannets, albatross, petrels, shearwaters and shags--they will amaze you with their speed and beauty. We can take you close to their nesting sites and watch them fishing.
