Otago Peninsula Wildlife Tour

Half Day

Price from £46 per person

A Monarch Wildlife Cruises vehicle will pick you up from your hotel for your transfer to Wellers Rock Wharf, Otago Peninsula, the departure point of your tour.  This transfer also doubles as a scenic bus tour of the beautiful Otago Peninsula. Board your Monarch Wildlife Cruises vessel M.V. Monarch to commence a half day Otago Peninsula Wildlife Tour. M.V. Monarch is a 16.5 metre diesel-propelled sail boat with a top speed of 9 knots. Cruise the length of the beautiful Otago Harbour and experience unrivalled viewing of the exciting diversity of wildlife which abounds on spectacular Taiaroa Head; the only mainland nesting place for Northern Royal Albatross in the world, and home to NZ Fur Seals and eight other nesting bird species. You may also see dolphins, sea lions and a fascinating array of rarely seen ocean birds including other species of albatross, penguins and marine mammals in their natural environment.
