About Monarch Wildlife Cruises & Tours
We offer unrivalled wildlife experiences and special access to protected areas on the Otago Peninsula. Dunedin locals and visitors have been enjoying our tours for over 35 years!
Hop aboard a Wildlife Cruise and explore the Otago Harbour and beyond. Our guests enjoy views of stunning scenery and a historic lighthouse. They'll spot rare and unique Southern Ocean animals like royal albatross and fur seals. Occasionally we spot sea lions and a variety of dolphin and penguin species. The skipper will give a full commentary along the way and our local crew welcome all questions.
We also offer a range of options that combine our cruises with a bus tour along the scenic Otago Peninsula and visits to other great attractions. These include Larnach Castle, Penguin Place, the Royal Albatross Centre and Blue Penguins Pukekura.
