to the city of Dunedin.
Designed for cruise ship passengers arriving in Dunedin with busy time schedules.
Hear stories of sea creatures and early settlers as you bus along the scenic Otago Peninsula.
Join us aboard mv Monarch for an invigorating trip around spectacular Taiaroa Head. You will see the world’s only mainland nesting place of albatross. You may be lucky enough to see the Northern Royals soaring and banking on three metre wings.
NZ Furseals breed, fight and play on the rocks, and the impressive NZ Sealions are returning to the sandy beaches.
Out at sea you can spot rarely seen ocean birds including other albatross species and petrels, and you may see penguins, dolphins and other marine mammals.
Following the Wildlife Cruise we take you up to Penguin Place the conservation reserve.
Discover why beautiful, quirky Yellow Eyed Penguins are the most endangered in the world, found only on the South East Coast of New Zealand.
A short bus ride over the farm takes small groups to the reserve, where your guide will lead you on foot through unique covered trenches into viewing hides. These allow close viewing and photography of the breeding behaviour and chicks of this shy penguin. Our bus will bring you back to the city along the beautiful Otago Peninsula.
