This was highlight of our fifteen day cruise. The ride is done in four wheel drive vehicles and takes about two and half hours. The ride is worth it as we found penguins galore. We had a very strong wind with sand hitting us in...More

We took a 4WD tour to Volunteer Point and had no idea how exciting the trip would be. Our driver was a charming young local mother who does the tours out of absolute passion for the Falklands. We drove out of Stanley in a convoy...More

The Falklands after leaving Stanley are basically barren. Not a whole lot of people but an awful lot of wind. It’s a very long ride to the Penguins, some on paved roads and many on dirt and finally no road. But you get to see...More

Maybe thousands? Too many to count. Patrick Watts had four other drivers and great, comfortable vehicles. We rode in a Toyota Land Cruiser with leather seats. It's an 11 mile trip over the bog to get from the farm to the beach at Volunteer Point....More

Visiting Volunteer Point to see King Penguins was a "must do", for me, if we could dock at the Falkland Islands, on our recent South America Antarctica cruise. Jimmy Curtis exceeded expectations. While we were delighted to see the King, Gentoo and Magellan penguins, and...More

We've been trying to find contact information for Patrick Watts. Do you have his contact info? Did you have any concerns about getting back to the cruise ship on time? We will be in the Falklands in January 2018. Thanks for your help!
