WHAT IS IN A PENGUIN ENCOUNTER

Guided by an experienced member of the Animal Care Team, you'll go behind the scenes and be given an overview of our fascinating Humboldt Penguin colony - their habits and natural behaviours, where they originate, why they're threatened in the wild, etc. You'll see how we prepare their fish and then help with feeding! You'll have special time inside the enclosure - including seeing inside the caves where our Penguins nest.

Some of the tamer Penguin personalities will be happy to waddle up and greet you. There are no guarantees of touching the penguins but you will get very close up and personal! We will show you our * star penguin * Dippy that has his own Facebook Page - dippy seaview ! Photographs of your encounter will be taken, downloaded onto a disc and given to you as a memento of your once in a lifetime experience!
