We have a special light that allows us to see them clearly and take high resolution photos. It’s a spectacular phenomenon to watch these little penguins interact in their habitats.

Please note: This tour has seasonal start and finish times. In winter and spring, we will go direct to the penguins after a scenic drive through Melbourne city sites. This is due to the penguins coming out as the sun goes down.
