After the Penguin Tour we head to the Royal Albatross Center to visit the info gallery, gift shop and take a light lunch (own cost). Your guide will also take you on a short walk to where albatross can be seen flying close to the cliffs. This is included in the standard tour price.
The tour itinerary will include a visit the world's steepest street Baldwin Street, the University of Otago and the Grand Railway Station for a look inside. Then it’s off to the Otago Peninsula for some amazing scenic stops on route to Penguin Place, a world class wildlife sanctuary for the endangered Yellow Eyed Penguin. The tour includes an introductory talk and then a short drive into the reserve. Your specialist guide will take you on a short walk (up to 900 meters of walking tracks) into a system of camouflaged hides to see the nesting habitat. The walk will also take in New Zealand viewing of NZ fur seals and Little Blue Penguins. There are some steps to negotiate and reasonable level of mobility is required for this tour.
Hotel pickups commence prior to this time, you must contact the local service provider to verify your exact pickup time.
