Southern Wanderer Scenic Wildlife Cruises - Akaroa

Southern Wanderer Scenic Cruises is a 100% local family owned/operated boating business. We have lived in Akaroa for 40 years & are dedicated to sharing our favourite places with you - knowledge & stories about this special place that we call home. Our vessel is safe, fast & comfortable, allowing us to get down the harbour quickly to spend more time with the wildlife in the marine reserve & beyond. Our trips pass historic sites of national significance & you will see native flora & fauna, often penguins, albatrosses, palm trees - whatever finds us out there in their wild & natural habitats. We visit places where the volcanic formation of the peninsula is vividly displayed. Enquire for discounted rates for Private Tours for small groups.
