We'll meet you at Portobello Wharf, an easy to access location with plenty of parking, and a nearby cafe, pub, and bus stop.  After checking in with our office staff, you'll board our brand-new boat, The Sootychaser.  Constructed in 2018, the Sootychaser is a top-of the line boat boat designed for comfortable and exciting wildlife viewing.  It has plenty of seating both inside the heated cabin, and outside on its rear deck.

From Portobello, we'll jet across the harbour, swinging close by Quarantine Island, to Back Beach and Careys Bay - where there's always  interesting ships and wildlife if you know where to look! 

From there, we'll go to the mouth of the harbour, and around Taiaroa Head - the only mainland nesting grounds of the Northern Royal Albatross.  Along the way you're likely to see other species of albatross, oystercatchers, fur seals, sea lions, sooty shearwaters, penguins, and much more! 

From Taiaroa Head, we'll take a leisurely pace back to the Portobello wharf, keeping an eye out for any additional wildlife along the way.


Total time on the tour is roughly two hours, and is an experience you'll never forget!
