The Bachelor NZ – Swimming With Dolphins in Akaroa

We’ve been tight lipped and just bursting for last nights episode of The Bachelor NZ to air!

It was down to the final three ladies and we were stoked to host The Bachelor Jordan and his date Fleur in Akaroa on what was one of the shows ‘fantasy dates’.

We couldn’t think of anything better!

A BIG thank you to TV 3 for choosing us as the host of their Akaroa dolphin swim experience!!!


Whilst Banks Peninsula is home to some of the most romantic settings in New Zealand (check out this list compiled by Christchurch and Canterbury Tourism for some more inspiration)….the big question is….did Fleur recieve a rose?
