Akaroa Christchurch Tour inc. Antarctic Centre
This tour is designed especially for cruise ship passengers. Departing Akaroa by air conditioned coach mid morning at 10.30am, returning by 4.30pm to ensure you arrive at the cruise ship before departure.
On arriving in Christchurch and following a stop at the botanical gardens join us on a brief sightseeing tour showing city landmarks an the badly earthquake damaged city centre. See for yourself both the destruction of the central city and the rebuild that is taking place.
The tour then moves on to The International Antarctic Centre. This features a recreation of the atmosphere of Antarctica with a snow and ice experience, the blue penguin encounter and an exhilarating Hagglund ride.
The Penguins held here are birds that have been rescued and cared for, some since they were chicks. Due to physical disabilities that have left them defenceless, many of them would not have survived on their own back in the wild.
