The all terrain vehicle enables you to get up close to a colony of seals and if you're lucky, you will see blue penguins nesting in their habitat. It is rarer to see a yellow-eyed penguin (we could only see one through binoculars and then again, I wasn't sure if I was really seeing one since it looked like a... More

Our 8 year old grandson grinned throughout the hour's ride in the all terrain argo. He and his 10 year old sister marvelled at the proximity of the seal pups and wild life. We all thoroughly enjoyed the magnificent views, the wild life and the information shared with us by the guides.It is also great fun

Very interesting worth a try. Will recommend it to friends. Got very close to the sea lines. Didn't try the cafe.

Unusual operation with activity to suit most. Can't comment on the coffee though. A valuable addition to the wide range of activities on the Peninsula and at Taiaroa Head

Fantastic view from top. Got to see sea lions & yellow eyed penguins at close quarters. Long way down to the beach. Its a very hectic long pathway up & down the hill.

As first time visitors to the stunningly beautiful Otago Peninsula, we arrived at the Albatros Centre at 10.30am, 1 hour before the centre opened. Seeing the sign to a 'cafe' we drove up the hill with the intention of buying a coffee before the centre opened. Walking into the 'cafe' the view was lovely. Before entering into the 'cafe' proper,... More

If you are anywhere near Dunedin, then this is an absolute must. Perry and family have one of the truly outstanding gems found anywhere in the world. The stunning views coupled with the closeness you get to both fur seals and blue Penguins in their natural environment is an incredible experience. Why DoC doesn't help subsidise the amazing work carried... More

Natures wonders is a private property right at the end of Otago Peninsula which is well worth the drive out from Dunedin city. I'm a Dunedin local, and really did think I had seen it all, well I hadn't! From the amazing views, to the supremely up close encounters with NZ's native wildlife this was a fantastic tour. Travelling in... More

The staff are welcoming. The ride down to (and back from) the yellow eyed penguin rookery and the fur seal colony, was for me, a little hair raising. The driver was very confident and very skilled but I was outside my comfort zone. The other three visitors were not fazed at all. It was all pretty exciting and I'd thoroughly... More
