Tickets: Adults $35, Children $10, Families $80

Discover Kororā, the Little Blue Penguin, the world’s smallest penguin. See them in their natural habitat – scurrying up to their cliff-face burrows at Pilots Beach on the Otago Peninsula. After a day at sea, the penguins congregate in groups known as “rafts” not far offshore where they often can be heard vocalising – usually short, loud squawks. Blue Penguin viewing tours are at dusk when penguins come ashore and make their way to their nests where they feed their chicks or roost.

Access to Pilots Beach reserve is restricted
from one hour before sunset to 8am .

Booking is recommended as visitor numbers are limited. Casual access is on a first come, first served basis.
