Excellent tour. Really informed and friendly guide, beautiful spot, comfortable short bus ride to the park. Right up close and personal with the penguins in real life. A must do and great value.

“Just great and fun”
Reviewed October 26, 2012 via mobile

I have this tour in February while the sky is very clear and dark. The sky is full of shining stars. The staff showed us the penguins and explained very clearly. Although I can't see a lot of penguins ( may be just 20+), but I it was a great experience to know more about the wildlife animals. Remember to bring a jacket even you take this trip in summer time as the place is quite windy.

Reviewed October 9, 2012

we loved the penguin tour, we were picked up by small bus at the motel and driven to the site, the tour guide was very informative and we got to see the cutest little penguins and then returned to our motel, the tour went for about an hour

“Interesting and up close and personal to the penguins”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Booking were made at our hotel in Bicheno. We got picked up by the tour bus, and brought to the penguin roosting site. The tour is very informative, the guide had given us a lot of information, while bringing us very close to the penguins and letting the penguins carrying on their activities - returning from the open sea to the nesting site. Too bad we could not take pictures.

“Good but cold!!”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Great and informative tour, we got to see so many penguins up close and even little chicks! Fair warning though, it was freezing. Freezing. Wear many layers.
