Seeing the penquins was amazing! We paid a little more to view them from the platform.- definitely worth it! Although, I can't speak for the other's experiences If you can, try sitting on the right side near the path for the best view. But, if you can't, you will still see them waddle down the path. After they have made it past the platform, they will continue up and through the bush so you can actually see them from the walkway too. Great experience!
We had a very good and knowledgeable guide, Roger, from AAT Kings, though the booking was with Viator. I must say I am a little disappointed at the penguin parade as the number of penguins that made an appearance was small... not sure if it is the season as i understand the parade tends to be bigger. However, one bonus at the venue was that i had an amazing view of the sky with stars, maybe the lights in that area was low, the view of the milky way, the starry starry night, was just fantastic. if you have a chance to do the penguin parade, don't forget to look up the sky .... for a city girl like me, that was the highlight of the nigh!
Love it! Those little creatures are just so great and funny. Without tour wouldn't be able to see them, and would have missed something. Take a lot of warm clothes with you, since to get a best place to see, you have to be there early, and it you might get cold. Once again tour quide Mark was good, and learned a lot about Phillip Island in a bus on our way there. Keep your eyes open, and you will see lots of wallabies on the way.
Lovely to see these amazing wee creatures returning from a long day of fishing. A long trip there and back though worth it. I was disappointed at the lack of food choices available at the venue. Very expensive what was available. 8 for some Chips. Maybe consider taking your own food. well worth the long drive
We highly recommend this tour and especially the penguin viewing plus experience. The tour itself was arranged by Aatkings, and I must say booking viator has given very considerable discounts as against direct booking with AAtking tours.
Viewing penguin at their natural habitat after they return from their long day hunt to shore is magical experience.
Added highlight is AAtking bus driver he was totally funny throughout the tour!
5 Star for this Tour!
