Where to begin, this place is paradise! So beautiful, peaceful and eye-opening! Pohatu Penguin Tours begins in Akaroa, where a mini van awaits to take you on an informative journey. Along the way you will enjoy breathtaking views and commentary of our unique history. Take the time for photo stops of Akaroa harbour and the endless Pacific ocean.
Pohatu Penguins offers unique eco-tours from evening penguin tours, nature safaris and sea-kayaking safaris to Pohatu, a beautiful working sheep farm that with 40 years of conservation efforts has become NZ largest mainland little penguin colony.

A fascinating tour, spotting penguins at sea and on land from a hide, as well as seeing them in their nesting boxes. From the Bush walk down to Flea Bay, opportunities to swim in pools under waterfalls. Flea Bay itself is a magical spot, where you can see seals, oystercatchers and shags up close on the rocks. If you love being on the sea, then the real highlight of the trip is the sea kayaking tour. See penguins get up close to the seals. The whole experience is immeasurably enhanced by the knowledgeable, enthusiastic and committed guides.
