Otago Peninsula: Royal Albatross Centre Tour

1. Otago Peninsula: Royal Albatross Centre Tour

Begin your tour with a 10-minute educational video giving you insight into the nature and lifespan of this giant bird. During the video, your expert guide will provide commentary about the albatross as well as some information about the Royal Albatross Centre. Begin your climb up the hill overlooking the ocean and the Otago Peninsula, to the exclusive observatory on the nature reserve where you can see giant albatross throughout their breeding cycle as they court, lay eggs and raise huge fluffy chicks. Learn more about the conservation efforts of the team that is necessary to protect the albatross chicks. The centre is run by a not for profit conservation trust with fees going back to a range of projects along the Otago Peninsula. If you are interested in learning a bit more about the history of the local area you can choose the 1.5 Hour Albatross Centre Wildlife & Fort Taiaroa Tour.

Exceptional We had the chance to see albatrosses in flight but also 4 nests and we could see one of the little ones. One more we were given a French guide which makes the visit perfect February period to remember to observe the nesting

we were there 20 years ago and you had a better view of the albatross' runway. Now she could only see when flying.

Very informative guide. Gave advice on how to make the most of our visit and to obtain the best pictures/videos.

Very important work, we learned a lot of the Albatrosses. Very interesting.
