Photo: Cathedral Cave Akaroa Harbour

The darkness looms in Cathedral Cave in Akaroa Harbour in Banks Peninsula on the South Island of New Zealand.

The dark large cave called Cathedral Cave in Akaroa Harbour on the South Island of New Zealand sits below huge massive cliffs. This cave has been carved out over many years by the turquoise sea water that swells inside Cathedral Cave. Atop the cliffs that hang over Cathedral Cave in Akaroa Habour, is where you can view various bird species that sit and explore the vast waters of the sea. Inside you can see the different layers created from various volcanic eruptions and the fascinating wonders of mother nature. The cave was well known to the Maori people only they called it Te Anau O Kokiro which was named after one of the chiefs.The only way to view Cathedral Cave is from the water whether it is on your own water vessel or if you book a tour with Akaroa Harbour Nature Cruises. A luxury catamaran with two decks, covered seating, a bar, toilets and plenty of room that takes you around the harbour with a full detailed narration by the captain of the many sights and different species of wildlife. ... continue below the picture...
