Check the Akaroa Shuttle availability with Viator. the shoreshipsandtours com website might also offer info on bookings. If it was me I'd hire a car, plenty to see and do along the way a fabulous drive, maybe do an overnight in Christchurch. The city centre and cathedral are a must see too. Have fun!
