Where The Wild Things Are

Join our Dunedin boat tour for a wild life extravaganza on a 2 hour cruise where you will see the worlds only mainland nesting place of the Northern Royal Albatross. Other wild life includes our NZ Fur Seals and NZ Sea Lions which are often found on our sandy shores so keep your eyes peeled whilst you cruise. You will also see rare petrals as well possible sightings of dolphins, penguins and other marine mammals on your cruise – each day is different being that our subjects are WILD. After you arrival back into Portobello Bex will guide you over the Otago Peninsula, taking the ‘high road’ for outstanding photo opportunities before descending into Dunedin City, visiting  the Worlds Steepest Street for a walk, Signal Hill for a view over the entire city or the Dunedin Railway Station - one of the most photographed in NZ which  awaits your photograph as well as  other  famous Dunedin sights  - you can help me choose!
