My best day in New Zealand. Great value if you value experiencing rare wildlife and amazing scenery. Sea lions posing on the beach a few metres away, yellow eyed penguins returning from the sea, walking up steep hills and nesting in the forest, fur seal pups and mothers lying on the rocks, stray pups calling out for their absent mothers and albatross flying above. I am still smiling.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Definitely not worth paying NZ105 for this trip where you can see first seal, sea lion and penguins at other beaches (free access).

Interesting tour of Otago Peninsula with many animals but a little too expensive.
$210 for two people for six hours. 30mins late for departure, no french documents for the animals, no driver for the 4x wheel drives. 2 groups, the first one could see the sealions awake, not the second.
We booked the" full option tour" Pick up at I site Dunedin. We spotted fur seals, sea- lions, yellow eyed, and blue penquins, and albatross. Very good organisation and small groups.

They offer a complete tour on private land- penquins, seals, royal albatross. Good guide.
Very instructive and fascinating. The guide has a very good and large knowledge of the Peninsula wildlife. We get close to sea lions, seals ans Penguins. The scenery by mini-bus (small groups) is also part of the trip. Worth it. Pick up at your accommodation.
