Cruise out into the spectacular beauty of Otago Harbor to explore the wide array of marine mammals and birds that reside here. Look out from the water at otherwise unseen areas of the peninsula to glimpse soaring birds, seals, dolphins, and penguins.

A trip into Otago Harbor is a must-do for anyone in Dunedin. Launch from the shore and head down the length of peninsula, keeping your eyes on the water for prancing dolphins and seals bobbing in the shelter of hidden bays and inlets. The diverse wildlife and natural landscapes make this an exceptional tour.

At the tip of peninsula is Taiaroa Head, the only mainland nesting site for albatross birds. As your guides explain the significance of this spot, gaze up at the skies for a glimpse of the grand birds swooping in the thermals. Their 10-foot (3-m) wingspan is really a sight to behold.

With onboard guides providing interesting narratives and fact sheets to help you identify the different species, this wildlife cruise offers you the chance to not just see the diversity of animals in the area, but learn more about them in a fun and engaging way.
