Overview

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.

Fantastic tour with so many penguins, even some babies. They are all around you, but areas marked off with flags to allow the penguins' their space. Small café and nice souvenir shop.

There are so many penguins! Gentoo, King and Magellanic buy the hundreds. You can get great photos if you will be still and let them come to you! It's VERY COLD though.

Sorry to say … some of our shore trips, planned through the cruise ship, were unremarkable. This adventure more than made up for any previous disappointments. The 4x4 vehicle gave us a jaunt reminiscent of an amusement park ride but with the spectacular scenery of...More

Not sure; I think it depends on the type of penguin. We saw Gentoo and King Penguins.
