Know More about this tour

After your cruise ship docks in Port Chalmers, just outside Dunedin, meet your guide at the dockside to begin your scenic small-group tour of Dunedin and the Otago Peninsula.

Your route takes you above the harbor for views over the peninsula. Enjoy more views on the trip into Dunedin, and make a stop at the historic Dunedin Railway Station in the city center.

Take the road out of Dunedin to the Otago Peninsula, and see signs of the volcanic activity that shaped this region over the millennia. Leaving the paved path, follow tracks toward the coast for views of scenic inlets usually visited by seabirds.

Then stretch your legs on a short walk along one of Dunedin's most beautiful beaches, where the rare New Zealand sea lion can often be seen basking in the sunshine.

Returning to your coach, continue to a lookout over the Otago Peninsula. Admire the views of sea and coast, including Cape Saunders, one of only two landmarks logged by Captain James Cook in the 18th century as he traveled around New Zealand.
From there, travel along the the gravel roads to Portobello, and stop to admire the leafy residential suburb of Dunedin, overlooking the Dunedin Harbor. You will be given several opportunities to get out of the bus and admire the views. This tour takes you to the finest lookouts Dunedine and Otago has to offer.

Then conclude your tour with the return journey weaving in and out of the various harbor side bays as you make your way back to Dunedin city or the cruise port at Port Chalmers.

  • Excellent tour as we got upgraded to a full day tour. Very informative guide and covered a lot in the day. Excellent viewing of the Abatross and Penguin colonies

  • The tour was great. Picked us up at Port Chambers in the Cruise excursion area, and drive us into Dunedin. Got to the the sights plus plenty of time to walk around the city after the tour was over. Peninsula was beautiful. Guide was great very informative.

  • Mark was our guide and he did a fantastic job. He was very knowledgeable, considerate, and I felt we saw and learned so much in half a day. The green carpeted mountains with sheeps and the ocean background made me feel like i was looking at a beautiful landscape picture! It really was picture perfect. This excursion is highly recommended.

  • Sharon was a good driver and guide. The station was very busy but we had a short time to wander. The beach was fantastic and views of the bays were worth the trip.

  • Loved every bit of it. Just more of seeing a truly beautiful country! Guide was quite knowledgeable.

  • Nothing spectacular. Just a casual look see to the coast. The guide was very comfortable with the tour and made it as interesting as possible.

  • Small group tour. We saw a young sea lion, no penguins sadly but we were warned it was unlikely. Otago peninsula is very beautiful
    With white sand and clean sea.
