Let's be honest here, this whole experience is abt sighting fairy penguins, though they throw in commentary abt the history of the place and some cheese and wine in between, which are not bad at all. But if u don't get to see the main characters then it's really not worth the money. Luckily for me it was an evening... More

Two families and a little island to explore with the fairy penguins all to ourselves plus yummy local cheeses, snacks and drinks. An awesome experience for us and our six year old.

Just staying for a night in Strahan, this was a great way to spend a few hours. An enjoyable boat ride to the island and after a light snack and drink we were able to explore. With a small group we were able to spend a reasonable time on the island seeing the penguins return home. After a welcome hot... More

The whole evening was lovely, the boat ride out, the commentary (which was interesting and informative but not too much), the island and the snacks. We enjoyed seeing the rafts of penguins swim back and then the nesting fairy penguins, including two chicks. If you have to choose only one cruise, I'd pick this one. The larger day cruise was...

This experience has been a great highlight of our holiday. Unlike other viewings of Little Penguins at a distance, here we were on a small island, free to roam & mingle with the local population of Little Penguins. Thanks to Graham & Tanya for their wonderful insights and making this night-time experience a reality.

The trip out through Hells Gate and then back to Bonnet Island was spectacular at sunset. The tour of the penguin colony was very interesting and the guides were informative and entertaining. The cheese, fruit and drinks were a nice touch. Good job, guys.

A worthwhile activity in the evening.... Always a small group (we only had 8, can be 15), walking around a small island getting very close to the local fairy penguin colony.... Good tour guides, and was fun..
