In contrast to what many people are saying, we managed to see penguins in Granite Island in this tour. Couple with a very friendly and knowledgeable tour guide (Steve) who has such remarkable passion and interest as a Citizen Scientist for these amazing little creatures, it was one of the nights I'll remember for a long time in my solo trip to the Fleurieu Peninsula.
I felt I learned so much from the explanations by Steve with regards to the natural life cycle and behaviour of the penguins. Being a small tour group last night, he managed to entertain our individual questions and curiosities, thereby making the tour even more personalized and special.
I'm impressed how tenacious and passionate Steve is in protecting and correcting the misconceptions at Granite Island. Sightings of penguins are dependent on many factors such as time of day, season of the year, and their life cycle, all of which were explained thoroughly in the tour.
Highly recommend this tour to anyone.
