The Nature Experience Of A Lifetime!
Take a unique journey from the charming shoreline village of Akaroa, up over the rim of an extinct volcano, past spectacular farmland and ocean views, and down eastern slopes to the Pacific Ocean. There, at the foot of one-hundred-metre cliffs, we will encounter an adorable colony of New Zealand Fur Seals, swimming and sun bathing amongst 8-million-year-old volcanic deposits.

Paul met us, at the wharf (from) the Solstice. He took us to his private property which has a seal colony. The trip is down to earth. His property is interesting with spectacular views and a few hidden secrets. Paul gives a good history of the area, a close but not too close seal viewing. Paul respects the animals habitat and Maori history. We enjoyed a cup of tea and Paul baked muffins. We sincerely recommend you contact Paul and enjoy a very close encounter with the seals.
