The Otago Peninsula is abundant with wildlife, with many species of seabird nesting on its craggy outcrops. Most famously, it is the only nesting place on inhabited land in the world for albatross, in this case the Northern Royal albatross.
The chartered MV Monarch will take us on a personalised trip out past the colony, hopefully catching a glimpse of these magnificent birds in flight. If conditions are favourable, we may also be able to get close to the Otago shag colony and New Zealand fur seal pups.
Once out in the open ocean we plan to attract seabirds to the vessel by chumming. We should be able to attract other species of albatross and smaller species to the boat for close photographic opportunities. We will spend most of the time at sea.
