We were promptly met at the dock by our tour group. Our driver Darren was amazing. He was extremely knowledgeable about the country's history and local flavors. We had a two hour drive to Volunteer point which is truly the best place to see three different species of penguins. They truly were in there natural habitat. They were literally feet away from us. The photos we took were amazing. Even with the two hour drive each way it was the experience of a lifetime and well worth it.
Nyree the leader of Estancia Travel in the Falkland Islands was excellent. Efficient caring safe and full of information is Nyree. On time we met at the Stanley jetty then drove into remote beautiful Falklands’ country over very rough ground. Volunteer Point is home to 3 varieties of penguins and much other bird life. Very different King, Magellanic and Gentoo penguins in abundance and together. This was a special day seeing the real Falklands Islands with a proud 7th generation lady. Nick.
Five stars are not nearly enough for this spectacular day visiting the penguins at Volunteer Point on the Falkland Islands. For all of us, this day was absolutely tops!!!
The visit started as we climbed into 2 very tall Land Rovers, one driven by the tour provider, Jimmy Curtis; the other by Corey. We were soon to learn why the vehicles needed to be so tall. The terrain we traversed on the drive to our destination would have swallowed an average 4- wheel drive car. We also quickly appreciated the skill and knowledge of our drivers in being able to successfully negotiate the rugged and vast landscape. Along the way, Jimmy and Corey answered our questions, and informed us about the history and geology of the land over which we were traveling. It was a ride like no other — so much fun, so exciting — the journey alone would have been a very worthwhile adventure ….
But the best was still to come…. Penguins!!! Thousands of penguins in their natural habitat! Gentoo, Magellanic, and a very impressive colony of breeding King penguins! And baby penguins, too! We were able to walk amongst these incredible creatures as long as we didn’t get too close, including staying outside a perimeter around the King breeding colony, or interfere with their passage to or from the beach. Periodically, we would squat down to take a photo and a penguin (often a juvenile) would inquisitively approach us, which was quite special. We were also able walk down to the beautiful, pristine beach where penguins would come and go from the water.
It was a day like no other on what had already been a spectacular vacation – the true highlight of our trip. Jimmy’s professionalism and expertise were appreciated by our entire group. The schedule was planned to perfection, and there were no issues returning to our cruise ship on time. While vehicles of various tours do get stuck from time to time, Jimmy’s team traveled in caravan and experienced no issues coming or going. Finally, Jimmy accommodated our dietary restrictions with a nice boxed lunch for our return, and the communication leading up to, and during, our excursion was excellent.
We enthusiastically and unequivocally recommend this Viator excursion and think Jimmy and his crew are exceptional!
Jimmy and Tonya were professional, knowledgeable of the area and history, and considerate of their guests. The long ride to Volunteer Point is well worth the time; an experience of a lifetime!!! Don't be concerned about reviews that talk about a bumpy ride. Jimmy and Tonya made sure all in our party were safe and comfortable.
I was quite upset because the trip information promises 4 people to a 4X4 and we were 5 crammed into the 4x4. The guide said I could cancel if I wanted to, I said no as long as I get to sit in front. She allowed someone else to sit in front! They talked all the way there, the people at the back heard nothing unless we asked her to repeat. When we got there, a couple drivers stayed with the 4X4. Someone else's driver of same company was available for the people to ask questions. Came snack time, my keto lunch was no where to be found. I had 2 apples which was ok.
Luckily we stopped at boot hill, which to me more than made up for the bad mood I was in. All in all, it was a great day. The King penguins behaved and posed for the many photo opportunities. The Gentoos were a little moody and the Megallanics were scarce.
Thanks to fellow Canadian/Brit Jimmy Curtis & co.this was a highlight of a great Antarctica trip.
Long bumpy ride but so worth it to see the large colony of King penguins + Gentoos + 1 Macaroni hiding in the bunch.
Competent company.Thx.JUST DO IT!!!!
