We are a small family owned and operated business providing high quality tours with exceptional viewing to see yellow eyed penguins, a New Zealand Fur Seal breeding colony, New Zealand Sea Lions, Royal Albatross and a selection of wading birds that can be seen around the bays and lagoons.
The tours depart daily at 1pm through the winter and return at approx 6pm.
There is walking during the tour and requires going down and back up a steep hill to see the animals.
