We joined the last trip of the day and were lucky enough to see six Yellow-eyed Penguins coming out of the sea to return to their nests.
The walk to the hides is about one km long and there are quite a few steps. However, seeing the penguins made it worthwhile.

Great passionate tour, you start in the rehabilitation centre where actually great work on Yellow Eyed Penguins is done. Then they take you out on the premises to see the penguins in their natural habitat.

Small, informative tourist funded charity. Beautiful land with knowledgeable guides who explain the huge efforts to protect the Yellow Eyed Penguins. Also get impressively close to the fur seals. Very quiet in October, may be busy in Summer.

We went to see the Little Blue Penguins returning late in the evening. First, we got a lot of interesting information, then proceeded down to the beach afterwards. It was amazing to see these little fellas arriving and stumbling up the beach! Bring a jacket, it is pretty windy!

Very interesting tour, passionate and committed people. Lots of background information on the penguins. Good network of camouflaged ditches to view the penguins from.

You get to see a reservation for Penguins. Wandering around in a tunnel, we saw sea lions, penguins feeding their fluffy kids and we got told anything about penguins that you would want to know.
