Departure Times are as follows:
6:15pm bookings essential
Back Beach (Port Chalmers)
930am bookings essential
Departs from Portobello at these times.
Minimum numbers may be required.
Please allow approx 10-15 minutes for a ferry transfer and up to 2 hours for a Wildlife Cruise.
If joining a wildlife cruise, there is an option to catch the ferry from Back Beach Port Chalmers (15 mintues drive from Dunedin) to the wildlife cruise departure point of Portobello Wharf, as opposed to driving to Portobello (30 minutes from Dunedin) by joining a ferry transfer, before and after the wildlife cruise.
For families with very small children, or for people who feel the wildlife cruise is too long, there may be an option to join us at Careys Bay to shorten the trip to approx 1.5 hours.
