I don't understand any of the poor reviews for this place. This is a unique and wonderful experience and one that I look forward to doing again. Offering the most amazing views of the Ottago peninsula, along with close encounters with seals and penguins and the owners of this magnificent private property were so friendly, knowledgeable and passionate, a real...

Family run wildlife experience for those seeking a walk to the wild side. Great experience especially for those who are not up for a big walk to the wild side i:e little walking required as you are transported to the perfect coastal wildlife colonies on these southern shores. Wonderful & passionate undertaking with heart & soul for the preservation of... More

Tour over muddy rugged terrain in 4WD open air vehicles. Truly into the pastures and backroads. Beautiful overview of the coastline and inland. Short walk to see fur seals over a boardwalk path. Jacket and binoculars provided. Take your long camera lens to get pics of yellow eyed penguin (alas, we didn't)

Saw an add on the Dunedin guide maps/pamphlets and decided to give it a go - and so glad! We travelled as two adults and one 9 year old. From memory i think this group are not well supported by the Department of Conservation and it's a private funded sanctuary (i think) so any support helps! It's a bumpy ride... More

Excellent tour. The owner Perry was driving my vehicle, a real character who is passionate and proud of his beautiful property and so he should be. Totally amazing views! The birds, seals and penguins were a sight to behold. Funny little vehicles used, a challenge to get in and out of for the non flexible but I managed with a... More

Bumped into the owner Perry whilst we were in the north of the north island and thought we'd take him up on his offer to have a look around the Peninsula. It was amazing, friendly folk, cool vehicles, awesome view and insightful information plus we got really up close and personal with the wildlife, seal pups in particular. When we... More

The drive out was stunning!!! We had a late afternoon tour we had a group of 4 adults and 3 children aged 9,10 & 11. We all really enjoyed the tour, the guides where very informative. It's unreal just how close you get to the seals and the penguins. We didn't know what to expect but can honestly say it's... More

My wife and I did this tour on our honeymoon in 2005 and it was one of the highlights of our visit to NZ. We loved it so much that we decided to bring our two young children back to share the experience in 2016. Somehow the second time around was even better than the first! Our guide Nick was... More

We visited this 11 years ago and went back again as it was awesome, and it has gotten even better. We took our kids this time and they absolutely loved it. We had wild fur seal pups sniffing our legs which was just amazing. We also saw blue penguins up close. The Argo itself was an adventure which thrilled the... More
