The 6 hour trip was brilliantly organised. We ere picked up from our hotel and taken on a tour with an interesting commentary to the Penguin Rehabilitation Centre where penguins from the wild, who were suffering from an illness, or had been bitten by a shark, for example, were brought to be cured. Having seen the penguins in the various stages of recovery before being put back into the wild, we were taken to the coast to see the penguins and fur seals in their natural environment. We were then taken to a beautifully converted fishing boat at a jetty near the entrance on the south side of Otago Bay. From there we went out through the heads to view the magnificent abundance of bird and marine life. The albatrosses, with their 3 metre wing span were in full flight that day and were the highlight of the sea-bird activity. There were shags, shearwaters, penguins and baby seals climbing up the rocks. The commentary was excellent as was the trip back to the port of Dunedin.
Sarah was a terrific guide. She thought of everything and was very patient with someone who had not been sea kayaking. I also got a free swim that I hadn't planned on. So everything went well.
Bob picked us up from our hotel. What a nice guy. Couldn’t have been more helpful. In fact we were over the moon with this tour. The Pancakes were at the top of my list! Carole @ Mike, UK
The days activities were well planned, exciting and, at all times, done in such a way that safety was a priority.
