What you can expect

Discover the Otago Peninsula and its charming local wildlife on this shore excursion. While your cruise ship is berthed in 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 you will join a wildlife cruise around the heads of Otago Harbour where you will see a host of marine animals and bird life. Following your cruise, your tour will then head to the Royal Albatross Centre where you can enjoy some lunch (own expense) if required. After your break, you will join 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.
