Peninsula Encounters - Standard tour - Penguins, Seals, Sea-lions and Albatross
Our knowledgeable guides deliver commentary of activity. Our private conservation area ensures exclusivity with brilliant opportunities to photograph Hooker's Sea lions, Yellow-eyed Penguins, Blue Penguins, a breeding colony of New Zealand Fur Seals and other sea bird colonies. At Taiaroa head from a cliff face we watch and observe Royal Albatross flying about the headland and from the ocean. A further 25-30 other estuarine and marine bird species are seen during the experience around the bays and lagoons.
Summer 6 - 6.5 hours Winter 5 - 5.5 hour
Walking is required. The walk requires basic fitness as the terrain is hilly farm land, sandy beaches and stairways.
