We booked this tour as recommended by a friend who lives in Dunedin and we were not disappointed.
We started our afternoon with a lovely drive along the Otago Peninsula. As we were the only two in our groups, we had a great time with David who had driven us. He was full of knowledge about the area and it was one of the highlights of our time in Dunedin- an absolute credit to your company!
David took us to where the wildlife boat was moored. We then braved some high swells (be warned for those who get sea-sick! Advisable to take some medication in precaution) to the Albatross viewing areas. Our boat driver Nigel gave us wonderfully interesting facts about the albatrosses and seemed able to spot things without binoculars.
The Monarch company kindly provided rain jackets and binoculars for everyone on board. They provided a fab bit of extra warmth.
We managed to spot loads of baby fur seal pups lounging on the rocks and even saw a few sea lion. after approximately an hour of wildlife spotting, we meandered back to Dunedin harbour whilst Nigel and his team arranged teas, coffees and continuing commentary about places of interest along the way. We were treated to one of the best sunsets I've ever seen in NZ during my 17month stay here!
Thank you very much to David, Nigel and the whole Monarch team for a wonderful experience!
