Be one of the select few to venture out to a secluded beach away from the Penguin Parade on this fully accredited Eco Tour, perfect for lovers of both nature and adventure.

Personal headsets ensure you hear all of the informative commentary, while high-tech night vision scopes allow you to spy on the penguins in the dark.

A true highlight of this tour is the walk through the heart of the penguin colony. Commentary delivered in English only. Minimum age 16 years.

Tip: Wearing contact lenses instead of spectacles may make the use of night scopes easier for those visitors who have this option.
