What to do in Picton, Dunedin & Manapouri

Jump to last reply

My son and daughter (ages 28 and 25) and I will be traveling to the South Island in mid-January 2017. We've pretty much booked the travel and accommodations, and now we're deciding what we want to do when we're there.

Here's our itinerary:
Arrive Auckland from SFO, fly to Wellington same day, spend the night in Wellington
Ferry from Wellington to Picton, stay 3 nights
Ferry from Picton to Wellington, fly to Dunedin, rent car
3 nights at farm stay on Otago Peninsula
Drive rental car to Manapouri, stay 3 nights
Drive rental car to Queenstown, stay 1 night
Fly from Queenstown to Auckland, stay 1 night
Fly back to US

We're most interested in seeing wildlife, especially penguins, and a wine tour while in Picton. We'd rather stick with small tours and avoid crowds when possible (though I know it's high tourist season...) Any recommendations for good small-tour operators and particular excursions?
