Stay and Stargaze!

Stay and Stargaze!

17 May 2022 through to 31 Jul 2022

STAY AND STARGAZE

Stay 2 consecutive nights in an absolute waterfront unit, go on a 90 min stargazing guided tour on your first night and enjoy a late check out on departure day.

From only $415 for 2 adults.

  • You will be staying in a self contained unit, only 5 meters from Akaroa's harbour and take advantage of the amazing views.
  • You will enjoy an incredible guided stargazing tour Night Awe. Experience some stellar sights of our Banks Peninsula night sky in this stargazing group tour. Your immersion into the darkness starts as you first look up with your naked eyes. You will then get to see deeper into space thanks to our binoculars and telescope. Follow the Guide as he takes you on a journey of discoveries. Ask him any questions you might have about our night sky! No prior astronomy knowledge is required. On a clear night, it is essentially impossible to run out of objects to look for in the night sky, making stargazing an infinite source of inspiration and amazement.
  • Finally you can take your time on departure day with an 11am late check out. For the rest of the time you could do it all or nothing at all, explore Akaroa, or just relax...

Valid Sunday to Friday until 31st of July 2022
T&C's apply, check our website for full details or to book

For more information and bookings, call us on 03 304 7484 or email us at info@akaroawaterfront.co.nz
