The locals will tell you that no trip to the Christchurch area can be

complete without a visit to Akaroa, the jewel in Banks Peninsula’s

crown. The flight from Christchurch follows the spectacular

rugged coastline until you head inland to Akaroa harbour and

experience a sight that will take your breath away. Lush forests

and grassland run down the hillsides to the azure water of the

endless bays, fed by the Pacific Ocean itself.


It takes just 15 minutes to fly there as opposed to one and a half

hours by road, so you won’t waste a second getting to this quaint

seaside village. Early French settlers gave Akaroa its heritage and

distinct French feel that is reflected in the names of the streets

and local bays. It boasts a number of excellent shops, cafés and

restaurants to wander amongst at your leisure.


There are many wonderful attractions in Akaroa to explore making

this the ultimate day trip, one that you don’t want to miss!

You could combine your trip with one of the many other optional

activities available such as the award-winning Black Cat harbour

cruise to see the Hectors dolphin - the rarest and smallest dolphin

in the world.


Allow 3 hours. Minimum passenger numbers apply.
