Other things to note
We also run boat tours in Akaroa on SOUTHERN WANDERER (see photos on our listing and on Instagram at southernwanderer_nz), offering daily 2-hour harbour cruises at discounted rates for our guests (from $75/person) and personalised private charters… small numbers on board (8 max) enjoying spectacular scenery, wonderful wildlife and friendly, conversational commentary with our family crew. For a private trip for a bubble of 1-6 persons our charge is $400, discounted to $360 for our guests.

Numbers are limited so we strongly recommend that you book places early. Message us when booking your accommodation and we can arrange for you to make payment to confirm a cruise through Airbnb. We will refund in full if we have to cancel the cruise for bad weather on the day.

We also have a double kayak and a couple of mountain bikes available for our guests to hire... please enquire when booking.

Look for us (akaroacoastalretreat) on Instagram for photos showing the amazing scenery you can expect to see when visiting Akaroa and Banks Peninsula. Akaroa is a small seaside settlement, 80 kilometres by road from Christchurch. The Maori name translates as 'long bay' and refers to the harbour, in the crater of an extinct volcano that has been flooded by the sea. The town itself is truly a coastal retreat, at the end of the only road linking it to the city. You will not find it by accident, passing through on your way to somewhere else. You must decide to come to Akaroa and when you arrive... the rest of the world will seem a million miles away.
