Penguin tour, Pt Stanley, Falkland Islands

We will be on a cruise and will be at Pt Stanley on Jan 30, 2013. Are there any penguin tours I can go on? We tried to book w/the cruise line, but their excursion was already full. I understand shore excursions may be less expensive than the cruise lines'.

Yes - lots of penguin tours.

Shore excusrions will almost certainly be cheaper as the cruise line add a percentage to the cost.

It depends on which type of penguins you want to see, and how far you want to travel.

Many people go to Volunteer Point as there are 3 species there, including King, but it is a long, bumpy overland trip.

There are Magellanic penguins within sight of Stanley, which you can visit on a Nature Walk. I'd be surprised if the Walk is booked out - its probably the 4x4 trips to Volunteer Point thats overbooked. There are also at least 2 other locations within an hour of Stanley with penguins tours.

Are you on the Seaborne Sojourn?

yes .. Seabourn Sojourn. My husband booked the longer tour (King penguins), but I didn't want to do a 2.5 hr each way trip in a 4wd! So I'd go for the closer one, which was full, by the cruise line. Who can I contact, etc? Thankyou.
