Akaroa

Akaroa (Long Harbour) was the site of the country’s first French settlement and descendants of the original French pioneers still reside here. It’s a charming town that strives to recreate the feel of a French provincial village, down to the names of its streets and houses.

Take a scenic cruise exploring the beautiful, sheltered harbours. You’ll experience a rich variety of marine life including the unique and playful Hector’s Dolphin and the rare Little Blue Penguin.
