Dunedin Peninsula Wildlife Encounter

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.
