Well worth it

The tour to the seal colony was so much fun. We enjoyed the journey past the wind turbines and views of the Cook Strait. The seals were the highlight and we would like to thank our guide Chewy who was very informative. The mecedes van and morning tea was also a nice touch. Well done and i would highly recommend this tour.

Very interesting and informative tour

We are a group of six, and to write this review I asked the 9 year old to provide his valuable feedback. Here is what he has to say “the tour was inspiring, I learned a lot from Grant, the seals and the turbines are the highlights, and they are rarely seen (in fact first time in my life, my mum adds). I also learned a lot about our capital too.”

Great trip

4.5 stars - Convenient pick-up and comfortable vehicle to travel. Grant, our guide was very knowledgeable and a great driver. Unfortunately we had low clouds on top of the windfarm and didn't have great views but it was so interesting to see these massive turbines and so many of them. The highlight definitely was the seal colony, which we saw many playful males lounging around or showing off in the water. If you want to see pups you need to leave it a bit longer but then you can't get as close as you can get with the males. Great trip, a lot of driving but learned a lot and the whole family thoroughly enjoyed the trip. If you're prone to car sickness, you need to take some pills for this trip!
