New Zealand Education Programme

Black Cat Cruises have invested in creating a New Zealand curriculum approved education program to educate and inspire our younger generation.

We offer a Level 3 education program full of fascinating facts and insights on New Zealand’s Hector’s dolphin and the marine environment we all share as Kiwi’s.

The program includes a nine week lesson plan, and is completely free.

We are making these lesson plan books available to all New Zealand schools.

Study and Cruise

Let us bring your studies to life! If you are based in Christchurch or on Banks Peninsula we can also include an in-class visit from a Black Cat Cruise Skipper as well as a trip out on the water in either Akaroa or Lyttleton harbour to encounter the world’s rarest and smallest oceanic dolphin, the Hector’s dolphin.
