Description

Otago Harbor Wildlife Cruise & Dunedin HighlightsDunedin is considered to be one of the four main urban centers of New Zealand for historic, cultural, and geographic reasons.On this excursion you will enjoy a cruise along Otago Harbor, where you will get a beautiful view of the historic Careys Bay, the wharves of Port Chalmers, and experience a wildlife cruise around Taiaroa Head. See what cannot be seen from land: unrivaled viewing of the exciting diversity of wildlife that abounds on and around Taiaroa Head, the only mainland nesting place for albatross in the world. Taiaroa Head is also home to New Zealand fur seals and the royal albatross colony, along with a fascinating array of other ocean birds and marine mammals, such as mollymawks, petrels, cormorants, and sometimes even dolphins.On the tour, you'll hear about the fascinating geology and the Maori and European history of the area. There is a restroom on the boat and you'll be given morning tea, warm coats, binoculars, and information sheets, while your guide provides interesting commentary.Your tour continues with a scenic drive along the Otago Peninsula, enjoying spectacular harbor and ocean views as you head back to Dunedin City. You will be dropped off in the city for sightseeing at your leisure and return back to the ship by one of the shuttles departing regularly from the city center.Please Note: The downtown area is approximately a 20-minute drive from the cruise pier. Guests are responsible for getting back to their ship in a timely manner and at their own cost. Some cruise lines do offer shuttle service. Please check on board if this is a complimentary service or not.See our FAQ for more information
