Hear stories of sea creatures and early settlers as you bus along the scenic Otago Peninsula.

Join us aboard mv Monarch for an invigorating trip around spectacular Taiaroa Head. You will see the world’s only mainland nesting place of albatross. You may be lucky enough to see the Northern Royals soaring and banking on three metre wings.

NZ Furseals breed, fight and play on the rocks, and the impressive NZ Sealions are returning to the sandy beaches.
Out at sea you can spot rarely seen ocean birds including other albatross species and petrels, and you may see penguins, dolphins and other marine mammals.

A scenic harbourside drive will bring you back into Dunedin City.
You will be dropped at the cruise shuttle terminal which is located very close to the Dunedin i-Site.
