Very easy and convenient to get to. A walk across a pier. Very informative boards along the way. A very friendly guide at the lookout post, who is very knowledgable about the Cape Gannets and seals.Got to see the birds close up, without disturbing them and the cape fur seals, frollicking in the water. Would have been nice to have gone around it by boat, but did not have time.

We saw 16,000 birds - its an amazing sight and only a couple exist on earth. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful, be sure to ask them questions.
16,000 birds do emit an odor though.

They are busy with refurbishment. Should be great when completed. Staff at look out helpful. Handy to use Wild Card as an entrance fee
