What you can expect

This shore excursion is a must-do for nature and wildlife lovers! Starting from Port Chalmers, enjoy an informative and entertaining sightseeing tour of Dunedin and the Otago Peninsula including visits to the Otago University, Botanical Gardens, historic buildings, neo-gothic church architecture and cathedrals, stately homes, and the world’s steepest street with plenty of great photo opportunities. Afterwards, head to the Royal Albatross Centre for a guided tour of the albatross breeding sites. Here there will be some time for lunch (optional extra) before your tour commences. This is a not to be missed opportunity to visit the world’s only mainland breeding colony of the magnificent Royal Albatross. Witness unique social behaviour and breath-taking three metre long wingspans soaring overhead! The next stop will be Nature Wonders for a fully guided tour of a Yellow-eyed Penguin breeding colony. See these incridible birds and their nests along with Fur Seals and their pups, little blue penguins, and a breeding colony of cormorants. Finally return to your cruise ship with plenty of time before your ships departure.
