Nice to see the birds!
Nice to see the birds in their own habitat.
Thank You - to the thousands of travellers that have contributed to our Top Voted NZ Activities Map - it's free from Rankers.
Too cool to be blue! No pictures are allowed.
Be there after 3pm and have enough time there, when you are patient you will see a lot of penguins on the beach - awesome and free.
The set up was very comfortable for the guest and the penguins appeared to be very uninterrupted by the observations.
If you want to see penguins, come here. The Albatross Centre in Otago offered a similar experience but for double the price. This area in Oamaru let us see over 300 penguins coming ashore. This was a spectacle to see. I would do the night viewing and pay the extra, you won't be disappointed!!
Very nice short trip, we only saw two penguins because we were too early. Best time to go is 5pm.
We had waited hours to see two yellow eyed penguins in the distance earlier so decided to pay to see them instead. Saw 70 or so come ashore!
