Early Bird Eco Cruise

Half Day

Price from £51 per person

Board your Cougar Line vessel at Picton Town Wharf to commence a half day Early Bird Eco Cruise. Seals, dolphins, penguins, gannets and shearwaters are numerous during the 55 minute journey out to Motuara Island, a bird sanctuary and safe haven for many rare species including the South Island Saddleback and Bush Robin. The island is predator-free and the bird life is relatively unafraid of humans. Small blue penguins nest in boxes alongside a well formed track which gradually climbs to a spectacular vantage point built above the forest canopy.
