Inclusions

  • Look and listen for New Zealand's critically endangered Long-tailed bats

  • Experienced guides on hand to answer your questions

New Zealand's Long-tailed bats (Chalinolobus tuberculatus) or pekapeka are critically endangered but thankfully they have been recorded regularly at our survey site all through winter  so there is a very good chance of hearing and possibly even seeing them as they fly by.

 

As bats are wild creatures, if none are heard we will refund 20% of the ticket price or you may elect to book another night free of charge.

 

A minimum of 4 people is required for this tour to go ahead.

 

Tours are scheduled for Tuesdays and Fridays but other dates may be available. Contact us for further information
