Spend a day exploreing the variety of wildlife on land and at sea in the spectacular environment of the Otago Peninsula. With 2 cruises, a nature walk, and a scenic bus tour, you have ample opportunity to glimpse some of New Zealand's famous fauna with a thorough exploration of the area.

Set out from Dunedin for a picturesque boat cruise across the natural harbor, admiring the peninsula from the water for a great perspective on the region. Watch the waters and try to spot good-natured dolphins, bobbing seal heads, and more. A second cruise takes you around Taiaroa Head to see nesting sites for the royal albatross high in the cliffs. Keep your eyes on the skies for a glimpse of these majestic birds swooping out over the waves.

Once you're back on dry land, your local guides take you to explore the nature reserves and conservation areas. Listen to their informative commentary as you gaze out and admire the view. Stop for a closer look at the albatross colony, and then pay a visit to the yellow-eyed penguin reserve and wading bird habitats.
