See what can't be seen from land. Enjoy the fresh sea air on a one hour cruise across the sparkling waters of the Otago Harbour, where soaring Northern Royal Albatross land to court and raise their young, where seabirds nest and where fur seals breed on on the rocks. You may see feeding or migrating sea birds. You may see sealions, or may be be lucky enough to see dolphins playing around the boat.

On half & full day options take in the impressive scenery of the Otago Peninsula, and include other attractions including Penguin Place & Larnach Castle.

The Otago Peninsula was described by the internationally-acclaimed environmentalist Dr David Bellamy as “the finest example of eco-tourism in the world."
