Cruise Ships Into Otago

Port Chalmers is the primary South Island port for the cruise ship industry and the ideal port of call immediately before or after visiting Fiordland.

The Otago Peninsula is home to the world’s only mainland Albatross breeding colony and various other ocean bird, seal and penguin species, including the rare Yellow Eyed Penguin.
Dunedin’s beautiful architecture is widely regarded as the best example of a Victorian and Edwardian heritage city in the southern hemisphere. The region’s rugged hinterland can be accessed via the Taieri Gorge Railway, which pulls up right beside the cruise ships.
