Be it a huge Albatross soaring overhead, or a tiny Storm Petrel dancing nearby, seabirds are in their element on the ocean & the best way to experience them is out in their world. The Petrel Station tours offer birders exceptional up close views & photo opportunities, & with 9–10hrs on the water you get lots of time to enjoy the stunning seabirds. Tours go year round, in all seasons. Why the tours are so good: Worlds best tour to see New Zealand Storm Petrel; lots of specialty seabirds (Pycrofts, Cooks, Grey Noddy & more). 24 species breed locally, workups of thousands of Buller’s Shearwater & Fairy Prion plus migrating, scarce vagrant, tropical & southern seabirds. The tours run alongside our long-term at-sea sightings research project.
