Travelled all the way from Hokianga on a recommendation and it was great!

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... read 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

Visiting Dunedin without doing this tour would be a real shame. Our tour guide Perry shows such passion for his slice of paradise, it is very admirable. Our tour included fur seals, penguins, loads of birds and an understanding and appreciation of the of fragile ecosystem on the Otago Peninsula. The ride around on the 8 wheeler was a blast... More

With our fun, passionate and highly dedicated and knowledgeable guide, Perry, we accessed remote parts of the Otago peninsula that most tourists could not. We were greeted by a miriad of wildlife including penguins and seals within reach and the views were to die for. We loved the buggy in which we were transported that allowed us to access all...

I first went here closer to 15 years ago and loved it! So when I was back in Dunedin recently with people who hadn't been, I made sure we went again. First of all, make sure you book! We drove out without a booking in March (not school holidays) and they had been fully booked with cruise ships visitors. Luckily... More

I couldn't recommend this tour enough. The ride on the 8 wheel vehicle is fun and bumpy. If you have limited mobility, it beats other tours where you need to climb up and down steep hills to get to the beach. The views of the peninsula from the top of the hill is beautiful. You can get up close to... More

This was the third or fourth time I'd been to this attraction, and it's still as impressive as the first time. However, it is looking quite tired around the cafe area with overgrown weeds and well in need of a refurbish. Nevertheless, the ride on the eight wheel buggies is well worth the trip, and the views are some of... More

Very interesting experience. We could see wild seals and yellow penguins. Seals could be seen from close distance whereras the pinguin only from big distance, he does not like human beings. Maybe the biggest atraction of the tour was our guide Perry, his knowledge, his passion were fantastic.
