This tour option differs from our standard option by replacing our guided Albatross viewing with a one-hour wildlife cruise aboard the MV ‘Monarch’ to view the albatross colony and other marine wildlife. The tour departs daily from Dunedin city in the mid-afternoon to the beautiful Otago Peninsula and its wildlife 'hotspots', catering to small groups and providing a glimpse into the world of tourism and conservation working in a symbiotic relationship. Providing absolutely unrivaled viewing of estuarine and marine wildlife.
