Albatross Cruise & Natures Wonders

Experience world-acclaimed wildlife from the sea onboard the catamaran Albatross Express. Cruise Otago Harbour past Aramoana sand spit, the Mole and Taiaroa Head with its historic lighthouse before docking at Weller's rock. Then board your bus to head to a private working farm owned by the Reid family. Natures Wonders is their self-funded ongoing conservation effort to ensure that their land is preserved for all future generations to enjoy, by protecting the penguins, fur seals and other wildlife. Here you will board an 8-wheel-drive vehicle, known as an Argo, for a scenic off-road journey to view some of the Otago Peninsula’s most spectacular wildlife inhabitants. Highlights include seeing the New Zealand fur seals that live on the rocks, and the sea lions that are naturally sand dwellers. Blue penguins in their burrows are also a common sight on this tour. Enjoy the thrill of the ride on the Argo that takes you places other vehicles would find difficult to access. Half way through the tour, the groups will switch over and continue the tour via 4WD coaster bus. Notes: The Argo ride carries six guests and the approximately 15-minute ride is across open countryside, involving some steep and bumpy off-road driving. Wildlife sightings are likely but are not guaranteed.
