Fabulous experience, up close and personal with a yellow-eyed penguin and her chicks. Michelle was very knowledgeable and a great guide. My Kiwi Husband and I learned alot about this endangered species. We will return! Highly recommend this tour for natives and visitors, well worth the $16NZ!

Close up view of baby penguin and mother. Great to see, and Michelle (guide) was very knowledgeable.
