Evening Viewing Premium Entry

Use the discount code Penguin20 for 20% off evening viewing - valid until 30th November


You have individual seating which makes the experience more comfortable. You will be informed about the lives of the penguins during a commentary delivered by one of our guides. When you make your way out to the grandstand you will enter into the breeding colony on a boardwalk and walk among their nesting burrows.

In the Premium Viewing grandstand you view the penguins from only a few metres away. Participants in this tour need to remain still and quiet because the penguins are so close and are frightened by sudden movement. 

Premium viewing is restricted to only 60 seats so bookings are advised. 




If making a booking for the same day, please call us on: 03 433 1195
