Po­hatu pen­guins

Go Travel New Zealand - - Contents -

Come on a tour of the largest colony of lit­tle pen­guin on main­land New Zealand. We have over 1300 breed­ing pairs. Po­hatu Pen­guins is a fam­ily owned and op­er­ated busi­ness that has been do­ing con­ser­va­tion with pen­guins and other na­tive species for over 30 years. Learn of the con­ser­va­tion work we do to save this en­dan­gered species. See pen­guins up close, feed our friendly pet sheep, and take pho­tos of our beau­ti­ful coastal scenery, get­ting to have a real unique kiwi ex­pe­ri­ence. We have small group tours for all to en­joy. From two hour na­ture tours to our 24 hour Po­hatu pack­age (in­clud­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion) or for the more ad­ven­tur­ous our sea-kayak­ing sa­fari see­ing a seal colony and other marine wildlife. All of our tours pick you up from the his­toric French vil­lage of Akaroa . We will take you by 4WD mini-vans over the hills of Akaroa's ex­tinct vol­cano. We stop at many view points along the way for photo op­por­tu­ni­ties. We have a short visit at Misty Peak re­serve, where we stand 700 me­ters above the crater rim and you will be able to gaze across the en­tirety of Akaroa har­bour. Mon­i­tor­ing of pen­guins nest­ing sites will al­low you to get up close and per­sonal giv­ing you a very good op­por­tu­nity for pho­tos (just re­mem­ber to turn off your flash). Guides will also point out other na­tive bird species of in­ter­est along the way. For more in­for­ma­tion visit our web­site: www.po­hatu.co.nz
