Private Royal Tour (60 Minutes) All ages

Fully Private Albatross Tour

Wish to learn more about the magnificent Dunedin Royals in your own bubble? Book our 60minute fully Private Royal Tour with a dedicated expert albatross guide. Suitable for groups of up to four people.

Tour includes a short walk to reach our glassed exclusive viewing observatory and commentary on the Northern Royal Albatross, history and culture of Pukekura “Taiaroa Head’. Witness the chance of seeing these majestic birds in flight and hear the fascinating life of a royal albatross at the world’s only mainland breeding colony in the world and help support a private charitable conservation trust.

Please note: October is difficult to guarantee albatross sightings as chicks depart the headland in September and new season nests are built in late October.

During tours in October, we hope to see some new season adults either on the ground, in the air or both, but there is a small chance we may not see any.
