Points of interest within this tour includes:​

  • We take the high road, along the top of the Otago Peninsula, winding our way down to the inlets to meet a variety of wading birds before arriving at one of the peninsula's most stunning beaches.
  • Walk along a sandy beach, where over the summer there is a high chance of encountering the endangered New Zealand sea lions or fur seals. These animals are impressive to watch and can be quite active towards dusk.
  • From a cliff viewing location, we often see royal albatross gliding overhead. Hear first-hand accounts of the management practices your guide developed to ensure their survival.
  • With the aid of binoculars, we look out to sea to view and identify a range of seabirds (shearwaters, petrels, other albatross species, shags, gulls).
  • From here we depart to the largest remaining native forest left on the Otago Peninsula. A unique opportunity to enjoy dinner outdoors, consisting of blue cod fish’n’chips and salad.
  • After dinner, we take a gentle stroll and explore the forest by torchlight. A magical experience to awaken the senses. As each tree is illuminated, you will hear stories the many uses of the flora by Māori and the Europeans.
  • This tour can be extended to include our Southern Stargazing Tour (at a discounted rate).  During this tour be fascinated by the science of the stars, see other distant galaxies and listen to Māori stories about the night sky. A full refund of the additional cost of the Stargazing tour will apply if the weather conditions stop us from seeing our southern stars.
