Bird and wildlife enthusiasts shouldn’t miss this cruise in the Otago Harbour. You don’t have to travel far from the city to get out into the wilderness, as the Otago Peninsula is home to a vast array of wildlife. Spot royal albatross, fur seals, sea lions, blue penguins, cormorants, and more, and learn all about them and their habitat from the crew. Dress warm, as the weather is often cold and blustery here, but this is good wildlife-spotting weather, as the albatross in particular like the wind.

This is a very small group tour packed full of adventure but not requiring a high level of fitness. While there is plenty of action for all ages, we often have older retired people on our tours who are still active and love the out doors. We aim to pack in as much as possible each day without compromising on the comfort and rest you'd expect from a holiday like this. We often run the tour for just 2 people. The maximum would be 6 people. We can cater for larger groups on a private tour basis only. You will have your own local guide for the duration of the tour, as well as meeting a number of Stewart Island local guides with all the activities included. We book everything for you and are well prepared for dealing with any unforeseen changes by weather or other circumstances. You will enjoy exploring some of NZ's most remote, pristine and beautiful environments, unique wildlife, hear interesting stories and discover local history. Great food and Stewart Is hospitality is second to none.
