Me and my friends stoped in the Akaroa Adventure Centre to ask for some opportunity how we can spend the active afternnon over there.
We decided to go to play minigolf at the first and went to pedal boats after.
We enjoyed all of this afternoon, it was realy nice and funny! Beautiful and helpfull staff and places which we could see! I can fully recomend it!!!

We rented a kayak for a couple hours and had a really great experience. The staff member who helped us get out on or kayaks was really kind and even lent us some sunscreen. Unfortunately it was pretty windy out on the waters on the day we went so we didn't really get too far but the views were breathtaking. We didn't see any dolphins but apparently it's a possibility to see some if you paddle out far enough

Amazing trip and good value. We took a double kayak out for an hour and saw so many dolphins coming right up to us! Of course, you can't expect this treat but it was such an awesome surprise. Welcoming staff and everything well explained too.

Beautiful landscape with easy kayaking. We were well looked after Akaroa Adventure Centre. We took a family trip for 3 hours up the coast and back, unguided. The kayaks and map with instructions were fine.

Me and my friend had a day out in akaroa, we started off at the adventure golf where staff were lovely and more than welcoming, Had a great time!
After that they suggested where we go kayaking. Beautiful spot! The guy there was also very friendly. Helped us with all our questions and talked us through the safty procedures very clearly. Overall a brilliant day out, highly recommend!

Good price to get a kayak and explore ourselves (we opted for the half day since it wasn't much more to pay than for 2 hours). Kayaks and equipment were good quality. However, not sure about the advice/'dolphin whisperer' claim on their website. The guy who set us up with the kayak seemed pretty bored and certainly didn't offer any advice on cool things to look for, even though we were the only customers at that time. We did actually come across 2 dolphins, but this was not thanks to any advice given and I think we just got really lucky. When we came back we were pretty excited about our dolphin sighting, but the guy seemed unimpressed. I know if you do this everyday it probably isn't exciting, but some enthusiasm would have gone a long way.

We rented a kayak and loved the scenery--glad we did it, but wish we had sprayed. Lots of bites from sand flies to help us remember the excursion!
