Cruise Passenger Information

Akaroa is now the main port of call for the Canterbury region. Previously Lyttelton received many of the cruise ships but the earthquakes in Canterbury changed that in 2011.

Akaroa is well suited to handle the cruise ships and the village has been embracing the ships and their passengers for 8 years now.

Akaroa is a tender port and tender boats carrying up to 100 passengers at a time transport the passengers from the ship to the main wharf in 20 minutes.
