"Visit a Fur Seal Colony" Dunedin Things to Do Tip by bsfreeloader

Dunedin Things to Do: 179 reviews and 354 photos

The Otago Peninsula is home to several New Zealand Fur Seal colonies. Most of these colonies are located on private property, and the only feasible means of visiting one is signing up for a tour out of Dunedin. Elm Wildlife Tours? ?Peninsula Encounters Tour? visits a particularly large fur seal nursery. At the right time of the year, a visit to the nursery should yield outstanding seal pup viewing and photographing opportunities.
