The Lagoon on our ranch, Bluff Cove, is home to 3,000 Gentoo Penguins, a growing colony of King Penguins, and an abundance of other spectacular wildlife on a beautiful wilderness beach only reached by our 4x4 vehicles. Home-baking and delicious local flavours are served with live music in the Sea Cabbage Café. The Museum tells the story of Bluff Cove. Our award winning tour is a fabulous combination of Falkland wildlife, heritage and hospitality.

The ride to Bluff cove is almost exciting as seeing the thousands of penguins that have a rookery here. I cannot emphasize enough that this is a very fun trip if you don't mind being josseled around in a Land Rover off road. My sons enjoyed the ride almost more than the penguins. The little cafe at the cove was... More

This is a real Crocodile Dundy experience. First, you ride for about half hour on a four wheeler to the penguin lagoon. There you see hundreds on penguin at your feet along with other wildlife. It is so cold that you go the Blue Cove museum and cafeteria to warm up and enjoy their delicious pastries. It is definitely a... More

Bluff Cove Lagoon Penguin Tour is offered as a shore excursion to cruise passengers stopping at Port Stanley. Guests will be picked up at the Stanley pier and transported in minibuses (20 mins along Darwin Road) to the meeting point and then transferred to the 4 x 4 land-rovers for another 30 mins off-road cross-country ride across very undulating terrain...

If you have the time and your body can take the bumps, ride in a 4 wheel drive vehicle to Bluff Cove. There you will see hundreds of gentoo penguins and Magellanic penguins, with a few king penguins there, too. Unlike some places where you have to observe the penguins from a distance, you can sit or even lie on... More

We did this as a shore excursion off of a cruise. This was the best value and the closest of all of the penguin colonies. You take a four wheel drive vehicle to the cove. It was fun. It reminded me of being on safari in Africa except it was cold! A game warden had marked off with white flags... More

We were picked up at the dock and taken by van about halfway there. Then we transferred to 4x4 jeeps for a drive over the peat bogs to the lagoon. The penguins were wonderful. We saw hundreds of Gentoo and King Penguins up close and enjoyed a wonderful visit to the small museum and gift shop on the beach as... More
