Observe penguins in the wild on this evening adventure. A wonderful option for people who wish to take part in our monitoring program and learn more, in depth, about our conservation efforts giving you great insight into the life of a penguin. After a stunning scenic drive from our office with 4WD minibus over Akaroa extinct volcano crater rim you will discover the tranquil beauty of Pohatu bay. Once in the bay you will set off for a walk and talk around the colony to monitor nesting sites and make sure that our Little Penguins are doing well. You will be able to see them up close and learn about their behaviors and how our 30+ years of conservation efforts have saved the Flea bay colony from extinction. Then, you will have the opportunity to spot the penguins undisturbed from our hides, socializing on the water with our binoculars and our telescope and at dusk a very high likelihood of some returning to shore. We depart before it gets to dark and leave it for the penguins to do their thing without us in their way. From December to February we sometimes have penguins in care and you may have the chance to see some of our caring work such as supplemental feedings and releases.
