This guided tour with one of the Catlins' real characters gives you incredible views of the Yellow-eyed Penguin (or Hoiho) as they head from land to sea for the day from a private location in what is a truly remarkable sight. 

The tour then goes to view the famous Nugget Point Lighthouse, which is a 20 minute walk (each way) which offer plenty of great photo opportunities. 

During the tour participants will be given an introduction to various landmarks and points of interest in the Catlins.

There will also be a Fur Seal viewing and sea bird viewing.
