This was our second visit to a rookery during our S.A. cruise and, while we enjoyed it, it certainly was not our favorite. The ferry/boat ride from the dock to the island was long ... very long which didn't help. Once we arrived, the wind whipping across the island was strong enough to knock you over. Granted, there are lots of penguins to see (and they aren't timid at all), but that's all there is to see. If you're into photographing penguins, then you'll be in seventh heaven. If not, then a quick walk up to the lighthouse and back will satisfy any curiosity you had about penguins. Along the way, you can see them stand, watch them poop, watch them walk, watch them stand, watch them sit in their burrows, watch them stand and, did I mention, watch them stand? You get the picture. No doubt, it probably would have been better if we had been there when the little ones were around.
