    We bought the premium seats, and saw a load of penguins (as well as some goofy seals!) very close up. Worth staying right till the end, as some people leave their seats and you can move closer. Definitely worth the time and money. However, this is obviously something that can vary depending on whether penguins feel like coming up that night or not. We were lucky and saw almost 40.

    One of the worst tourist rip-offs we have ever experienced. To charge $50 plus each to see 12 penguins in their natural habitat is a disgrace. Thank goodness here in the UK we are able to witness our beautiful flora and fauna in its natural state without having to pay an extortionate amount of money. We were shocked. Especially when everyone is told to stay in their seats, not to take photographs (when the whole sealed off area is so brightly floodlit it is almost blinding) and not to speak for fear of unsettling the penguins (when most of the time there is a Chinese interpreter shouting his head off throughout). If anyone wants to see penguins we would recommend a visit to their nearest zoo.

    The penguins are really cute and the sea lions fun to watch. But we think this tour is overpriced. We understand they do a lot of good work protecting them and all, but a family ticket is $75,-. Our host the evening we went (March 14) read the information about the penguins from a paper. We missed some enthusiasm. Together with the high price we payed, we've expected a bit more. Don't get us wrong, to see the penguins is really awesome. We hope that you have a better host, cause that makes the evening as well.
