Seal Coast Safari
You're never far from the ocean in New Zealand—and with it, a wondrous array of wildlife. Take a private tour to the "Seal Coast" just outside of Wellington, where off-road vehicles drive 20 kilometers along the rugged beach to view a colony of New Zealand fur seals, taking in the spectacular scenery along the way. You'll also visit farmland and interact with wild goats, ostriches and deer. The tour also includes a trip to Wellington's Brooklyn wind turbine for stellar views over the city, followed by a coffee overlooking the Leaning Lighthouse. Book early and dress accordingly; tours run in nearly all weather.
