This is just a little note to thank Black Cat Cruises for a wonderful trip. We took our two little people out on your Lyttelton Wildlife Cruise on Monday (Labour Day).
The weather was perfect and we saw lots of dolphins, one busy young fur seal, some nesting shags and other sea birds. The skipper was precise in his piloting of the boat and the commentary was informative and interesting.
All in all, a most pleasurable outing.
Our kids haven’t stopped talking about their day out. The postcards are shown to everyone who’s interested, with full details of the ‘mouse ear’ shaped dorsal fins on Hector’s dolphins, stories of the way the seal played with the dolphins and the long white ‘poos’ on the rocks under the Shags’ nests. Not bad detail from a 2 1/2 and 4 year old.
Thanks for your efforts to protect these beautiful creatures and to educate people about them in such a positive way.
We highly recommend your company to anyone who’s interested in harbour / wildlife cruises..

I just wanted to say thank you and give you some feedback on the cruise.
The group thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we saw lots of wildlife. The commentary was interesting and there was a perfect amount of it – you don’t want someone talk for 2h non stop 🙂 And I think it probably was the first cruise I have been on where you actually could understand what was said – absolutely full points for that. The staff was super nice and the vessels spacious and tidy. No wonder you win awards. What a beautiful part of the world you have down there.
