Owner description: Guided tour to see little penguins come ashore on the beach each evening.
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Such a great evening seeing beautiful little penguins! Our guides were incredibly knowledgable and entertaining and even though it was cold we were so thrilled to see these sweet little birds in the wild and so well looked after by the company. We were all captivated by these little guys and it was a highlight of our trip up the East coast.

We had a fantastic time.
There were not a lot of penguins but enough.
Some came right past out legs.
My wife and I were travelling with my elderly parents with my Mum being partially blind so we were unsure whether this night activity would be suitable.
IT WAS GREAT!
The staff made sure she was looked after and they carefully ensured she could find the penguins with her poor sight.
The staff and the penguins were brilliant. WELL DONE BICHENO...HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

The guides were really knowledgeable, kind, and engaging.

We walked to the office, but if you are staying at accommodation farther away they will pick you up.

Really liked that we got to see the penguins in their natural habitat, and we were disturbing them minimally. The guides really knew what they were talking about, and you can really tell they care about the animals.

Would recommend to anyone who wants to respect the animals in the wild. Children would also really enjoy this activity as well.

I attended the Bicheno Penguin Tour with 3 family members on 18/04/2013 and found it to be the best tour of all our stay in Tassie - we did quite a few tours of all different kinds. It was very professional and educational and to see the Penguins right at our feet was an absolute delight. It only cost AUD$25 for approx 1.5 hours and we got picked up and dropped off at our accommodation all included in the price. Well worth the money. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone interested in Penguins. Karen

It is Autumn in Australia.

The weather is cool and there are very few penguins.

I went to penguin trip on 15/4/2013 and there were only 7 penguins homing from the sea after fishing.

The tour cost AUD 25 and last from about 6pm to 7:20pm including travelling time.

Photo / video are not allowed.

Not recommended in April, it may be better summer they said there will be over hundred penguins.
