Our small group tours visit Nugget Point daily and give you the opportunity to view the remote and rugged Catlins Coast. Along the way you’ll spot wildlife that call this place home; fur seal, sea lion, albatross, cormorant, and penguin. You’ll hear interesting snippets of local history from our guide who grew up in and around these waters. We provide you with everything you need to have a safe but fun time.
TOURS & EXPEDITION
Rise and Shine! As the sun goes up the early morning paddle crosses Oil Store Bay; it’s here we keep an eye for some Yellow Eyed Penguin heading out for breaky. We tally up the seals on the nearby rocky shore before returning to the historical launching bay.
Setting a leisurely course for the Nuggets we search out seals and sea birds as we make our way along the cliff edge. At the “Fish Bowl” we watch the steady activity of the colony whilst looking up at the envious visitors high above at the Nugget Point Lighthouse.
Looking for a more tailor-made experience? Get in touch and we can plan your trail.
You are provided with all you need but dress according to the season and bring along a camera. Water bottle + Sunblock provided.
WHAT TRAVELERS SAY ABOUT US
Amazing experience. Jared was an excellent guide and showed us loads of cool wildlife including little blue penguins, albatross and fur seals. The boats are really good and it was a very relaxed trip with the best view of Nuggets Point, and it was just us there. Highly recommend!
10 out of 10
I highly recommend this tour! We did it early morning in June and had a fantastic experience! Despite being middle of winter the weather was fine and we were warm. Jared is an excellent guide and shares his wealth of knowledge about the local wildlife and history. We saw seals, penguins, gannets and had an albatross land right in the middle of our kayaks! The scenery is stunning. I have never kayaked before and managed easily. This tour gets a 10 out of 10 from me!
