A spectacular location 50 miles from Stanley offering 4,000 majestic KING penguins and many thousands of Gentoo & Magellanic penguins – all in their natural and undisturbed habitats.
An added attraction in spring and early summer is the presence of many hundreds of big, brown, fluffy King penguin chicks. These were hatched in the autumn and are most inquisitive and will approach you if you stand still and quiet.
