Akaroa Eastern Bays Scenic Mail Run


Enjoy 5 hours amongst some of the most stunning scenery you'll ever see.


We travel 120km weaving in and out of 10 bays from sea level to the crater rim delivering mail to 140 letterboxes to farms and settlements in the comfort of our Rural Post Van.

You will get an interesting commentary on the Peninsula's natural and social history.

Your tour includes a delicious homemade snack break, a visit to an historic church and a short walk on beautiful Le Bons Bay beach. Plenty of photo opportunities and comfort stops!

The tour operates from Monday to Friday, leaving opposite the BNZ bank, near the Akaroa i-SITE at 9am (on cruise ship days pick up is from the Main Wharf for all passengers at 9am) and arrives back at approximately 2pm.

Bookings are essential as we only have 8 seats.

Cancellations made 30 days prior to the departure will receive a full refund. Cancellations made at least 24 hours in advance will receive an 80% refund with a 20% cancellation fee applied. No refund will be given within 24 hours before the tour departs and because of this we strongly recommend travel insurance. CRUISE SHIP PASSENGERS Please make sure you book/board an early tender. There is no refund for late arrivals as the mail van has a strict schedule to adhere to. Although it is rare that a ship cannot come into harbour we strongly advise that you have travel insurance to cover your costs in case you must cancel within 24 hours before departure of the tour i.e weather. If your ship cannot come into harbour because of bad weather we will honour your ticket for one year from tour date and please get in touch directly to rebook.
