Join Mateo on Dunedin's premier winter-only afternoon penguin spotting & Otago Peninsula views tour
Departing from the city we promptly head for the beautiful Otago Peninsula. Taking in views along the high road, learn about Dunedin's pioneers and early European settlers who arrived in the 1840's.
Winding our way down to the bays and inlets of the Otago Peninsula we will be keeping a close eye out for any wildlife spotted along the way.
If the wind is strong enough we will head to Taiaroa Head where we have the chance to spot Royal Albatross. With a 3. 2m wingspan these birds are impressive to view in-flight!
Finally, the pièce de résistance is viewing Yellow-eyed Penguins - the world's most endangered penguin living right here in beautiful Aoteraroa, NZ. We visit a private conservation reserve to learn about the struggles these penguins face, what is being done to help them and we have the chance to see these wonderful creatures in their natural habitat (please contact us for up-to-date information about viewing expectations as the penguins are having a very difficult time currently)
