Come with us to a special place, where you can view the historic Lighthouse and explore its reserve. Our most popular tour is our Farewell Spit Eco tour which departs from Collingwood and visits Cape Farewell, the South Island's most northern point and includes our lighthouse tour. Or join us on a Gannet colony tour or a wader watch tour to view the summer home to over 90 species of bird including waders, Bar Tailed godwits, knots, curlews, whimbrels and turnstones. The tours started as the mail delivery to the Lighthouse keepers and their families. The lighthouse is automated these days, but the visitors keep coming - drawn by the special qualities of this unique spot and by the deep historical and natural knowledge shared by our local guides. Our company has been operating on Farewell Spit for more than 60 years and has a permit from the Department of Conservation to enter the reserve. We hold the only permit to visit the Gannet colony beyond the lighthouse and the wader feeding
