4WD Seal Coast Safari

Get up close to the resident New Zealand fur seal at Tongue Point and Sinclair Head on this amazing tour! Leaving Wellington city behind in a comfortable and spacious 4WD vehicle, you’ll view some of the rugged south coast’s famous landmarks including the Leaning Lighthouse and the unique Red rocks. Take in sweeping vistas of sharp-peaked hills, mountains, black sand beaches, and plunging valleys as you drive the stretch of rocky coastline. Much of the safari is on private land and is only accessible if participating in this tour, so your visit to this area is very unique. Your very own Department of Conservation approved expert will be along for the ride and will tell you all about these cute and furry sea creatures.

During your leisurely walk, be on the lookout for the giant weta - at three inches in length, it’s one of the biggest insects in the world! Then, you'll drive to the Otari Native Botanic Garden and Wilton's Bush Reserve, New Zealand's only public botanic garden dedicated solely to native plants. Another scenic drive takes you through the heart of the city and back to your ship.
