Description

Explore the Otago Peninsula without worrying if you can make it back to your cruise ship in time. This perfectly timed tour allows you to see historic Larnach Castle and its picturesque surroundings. Then, take an hour cruise to see seals, albatross, and maybe even dolphins and penguins.

Travel by road along the scenic Otago Peninsula to Larnach Castle. Journey back in time with your guide as you tour this ancient castle built in 1871. Learn the scandalous, exciting, and tragic history of Larnach Castle, see the magnificently carved ceilings and fascinating antiques. Step outside and into the internationally acclaimed gardens for breathtaking views of the castle's exterior and the incredible landscapes that encompass it.

Then board the wildlife cruise for unrivaled viewing of the exciting diversity of wildlife which abounds around Taiaroa Head on the Otago Peninsula including the only mainland nesting place for Northern Royal Albatross in the world. You also see New Zealand Fur Seals, rarely seen ocean birds, including other species of albatross, and you may also see penguins, dolphins, sea lions, and other marine mammals in their natural environment. The cruise includes commentary which includes details of the fascinating history and geology of the area.

Back on land, begin the return journey to the port, taking a scenic route with expansive views of the coast and harbor. Keep your camera out to capture some last minute photos of the fairy-tale scenery.
