Educational tour which is carefully organised to prevent unnecessary disturbance to the penguins habitat. Great for kids as they can see the penguins waddling up from the beach and close up too.

This was very well done made even better by our guide Michelle. We saw plenty of the little guys up very close. Worth the visit for sure.

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