It's a long drive from Port Chalmers to Portobello so on Sunday 28 April Port to Port Cruises & Wildlife Tours and NZ Marine Studies Centre have made it easier and fun getting from one side of the harbour to the other.
Cruise across the beautiful Otago harbour on the 'Sootychaser' from Back Beach departing 9.45am to arrive at the NZ Marine Studies Centre in time for 'Wild Food Webs & Fishy Feasts' session starting at 10am. Find out how local sea creatures adapt to catch their food, avoid predators and stay alive.
On the cruise you will view the birds that are on the Otago Harbour and receive an insightful commentary from the Port to Port skipper, Rachel McGregor.
This event has been especially developed for Port Chalmers children to experience the NZ Marine Studies Centre at Portobello.
The fee includes admission to the event as well as the return ferry trip.
Depart from Back Beach in Port Chalmers at 9:45am, to be in time for the 10am session at the NZ Marine Studies Centre.
The ferry then leaves the NZ Marine Studies Centre at 11:45am to bring you back to Back Beach by 12pm (approx).
Recommended for adults and children over 5yrs.
