Cruise Ship Passengers

Welcome to Dunedin!

Because we know you are short on time, but want to see the best of Dunedin while you are here, we have designed a trip especially for you.

It’s the same as our usual Albatross, Wildlife and Harbour Cruise, except we have tailored the time and pick up/drop off locations to suit your needs.

We can collect you directly from the Port Chalmers Cruise Ship Terminal building, so you don’t have to worry about finding us. If your ship arrives a little bit late, we will wait for you (8:30am-10:15am trip only.)

The vessel will be warm and waiting nearby for your arrival.

Sunny, windy, cool or rainy, our vessel is brand new and custom-built with your comfort and warmth carefully considered, no matter the weather.

Viewing is exceptional from inside or outside our heated cabin. Your choice. (Even our bathroom is heated!)

 

Albatross, Wildlife and Harbour Cruise

The cruise will take us around the most scenic parts of the Otago Harbour with highlights aplenty.

Albatross, seals, sea birds, shipwrecks and scenery are all highlights of this jam packed cruise. Keep an eye out for Blue Penguins along the way. They are a common sight on our cruises, but they are really shy, so you have to be quick to spot them!

You will be offered complimentary coffee, tea or hot chocolate along with a sweet treat.

Pick up point for the 8:30am-10:00am Wildlife Cruise is from the Cruise Ship terminal building in Port Chalmers. 

See the bottom of this page, or contact us to book.

 

Pick up point for the 12:55pm-3:25pm Wildife Cruise is from Back Beach, Port Chalmers. An easy 15 minutes walk from the Cruise Ship terminal building.
