Exploring the Catlins is better with a guide. If nature and wildlife is your thing, you're going to love our Sunrise Tour. Watch yellow-eyed penguins meander down the rocks to the sea just as the sun is coming up over the ocean. See an abundance of seabirds in their natural habitat. A truly memorable experience.
