The wildlife tour in an argo is a great way to get up close to seal, penguins and cormorants. Tour guide is very informative.

The 4x4 Argos were a fun ride but it was the wildlife that was amazing. The pups and adult seals were walking around us as we stood there (no touching allowed), and it was just so amazing to see. Later, they took us to see penquins nesting which was fun, too. The scenery was spectacular. Not to be missed. One... More

The whole family had great fun on this experience. The trip is conducted on a really cool 8 wheel buggy. Our kids (6 and 9) both absolutely loved it. Roaring with laughter as it splashed through giant puddles and went up and down steep inclines. The first stop was at the top of a tall hill giving amazing views of... More

The tour guide, was very friendly and knowledgeable and provided a great tour. We were able to see many seals from very close distance. You will be taken to these... More

The drive up to natures wonders naturally is doable in a campervan. As it was the winter season it was just me and my mum wanting to do a tour and they had no issues just taking 2 people out. Before setting of, we where given coats to keep us clean and our guide gave us some information about what... More

Loved it! Went with my friend and the baby seals are so inquisitive and come very upclose! Saw a yellow eyed penguin in the distance, no blue penguins but I don't think it is the season. Staff gave loads of information and were very helpful thanks for a great trip it's a beautiful place!

Location promised much but unfortunately the rude, unhelpful staff and poor standard of food in cafe made this a place we decided not to take a tour at. Disappointing.

There were 4 adults in our group. We all loved it. The views of Otago Penninsula are beautiful but the highlight were the seals. We saw so many and we were so close we could almost touch them, and plenty of them frolicking in the sun. The penguins were a little harder to spot, but our guide Brett was patient... More

We rode in an 8 wheel all terrain vehicle around the property to view beautiful scenery and wildlife. The owner, Perry, and tour guide were very friendly and knowledgeable and provided a great tour. We were able to see seals from only a few feet away, but only saw penguins from afar. Riding in the all terrain vehicle was a... More
