Having seen penguins at Phillip Island, had expected much the same. SO WRONG! The tour was much more personable. The guides (all very passionate and genuine volunteers) delivered information about the penguins while the penguins walked up from the sea. So many beautiful, cute penguins,...More

A wonderful experience, my kids loved it and so did I. They have created a first class experience, allowing visitors to get right up close to the penguins, while keeping things simple so as to disturb the penguins and their habitat as little as possible.

We were picked up from our hotel and taken to a lit path heading towards the beach. While we didn't see a lot of penguins, those that we saw, were very cute. Our host was very informative and we learned a lot about penguins.

We were warned when booking not to expect to see a great number of penguins, given the breeding season is not until later in the year and most penguins remain in the ocean during the winter months. However we probably ended up seeing around 5...More

Yes. You had better call them. The penguins, I believe are 'viewable' all year round. At night they walk into Bicheno too.

Depends on the time of the season- it normally is fully booked out in "peak season". Better safe than sorry!
