We stopped in at this site, near the end of a long day, dreary weather, and needing to nail down the reservations for our dash back to the ferry. How I wish I could credit the specific person but I would like to say that the patient, kind woman was infinitely patient in making FIVE reservations for us. It was busy and there was a line but we at no time were made to feel that we must hurry or were being a nuisance. We did try to hurry since others were waiting but do appreciate the patience and courtesy shown to us and we did get our much needed reservations! Thank you!!!!

I have found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. As a previous wildlife guide and many time visitor to the wildlife attractions in Dunedin, regarding Dagette’s comments, I imagine that there is very good reason as to why they steer people away from free wildlife viewing, especially with regards to Yellow Eyed Penguins. I know this is something that has been asked by the Department of Conservation in the interest of the penguins. In the areas of the Otago Peninsula in which people may freely visit and look for penguins, the populations of those birds have been in steady decline due to the number of visitors. These days if you go looking for penguins on those beaches there is a good chance you will not see any at all. In fact if you look up Sandfly Bay here on Rankers, you will see that while many people have enjoyed visiting Sandfly Bay, many did not actually see any penguins at all (this is the case whether you go at the right time of day or not). So if people ask where to go to see penguins it is suggested to visit a paid reserve so that people do actually see penguins. In addition, a good proportion of the money that you pay to do a penguin tour does go back into re-establishing the penguin habitat and caring for the health of the penguins.

Nice, lots of brochures - but not very helpful staff. They seemed more interested in selling me tours rather than showing me where free wildlife experiences could be found. Spoke to fellow travelers and got better information
