Directions to Akaroa Shuttle
Akaroa Shuttles offers a convenient and comfortable way to travel to Akaroa - a picturesque former French settlement just 75 kilometres away from Christchurch. Travel over the stunning Banks Peninsula foothills and down into Akaroa, enjoying views of the bays along the way.
Once in Akaroa enjoy a relaxing walk or a coffee in one of the many cafes, or head out on the water to see dolphins and seabirds. Book just the shuttle trip or add in a visit to an alpaca farm or a harbour cruise to really make the most of your day.
For cruise passengers docking in Akaroa, the Shuttle offers a trip to Christchurch for a day tour of the Garden City including the Botanic Gardens, the museum and the new shopping areas.
