The trip is very quick only lasting an hour, but a great opportunity to get up close and see the penguins. You aren’t allowed to take photos to avoid disturbing the penguins which is understandable. Worth doing and there wasn’t much else to do in...More

Thanks to Sarah we have a best tour there. We saw so many wild penguins they are so lovely! Don't forget to wear more clothes when you visit here! 第一次看到那麼多企鵝學到很多跟企鵝相關的知識,來這裡玩千萬不要錯過這個tour。

We didn't go on a tour but explored the area where penguins might come out (near the blowholes). We went down there probably too early (about 9:30) and had to wait for a while. You really have to keep quiet and also try not to...More

During our summer visit, our tour departs at 9.45pm! It was rather late for our youngest child, but certainly worth the wait. We get to see the penguins right next to our foot paths. They are right next to our feet. It is a must...More

Yes. You had better call them. The penguins, I believe are 'viewable' all year round. At night they walk into Bicheno too.

Depends on the time of the season- it normally is fully booked out in "peak season". Better safe than sorry!
