I had seen the penguin a few times. I think it is the best experience I have with the penguin. We had a group of friends and we all enjoyed it very much. We took lots of pictures. It is so nature, very cute and very close. We can follow the Penguin home and the guide is professional.

The son was particularly looking forward to seeing the penguins, and this tour was a delight. It's very well organised, and supportive of the needs of the penguins. It is really a privilege to be able to get so close to the penguins themselves.

Nice to come close to real penguins. The are really small and Wald by you on several occasions. Please dress warm and dark. Bring a Stativ for best photos.

I recently visited for the second time. A great experience for all the family, knowledgeable local guides with obvious respect and appreciation for the very cute little penguins. We all had a wonderful experience.

The guys at Low Head Penguins Tours are great guides and very informative of all things penguin. It was incredibly windy on the night of my tour but we still managed to see plenty of Penguins including some sitting on eggs in their nests. The highlight was when a small group waddled past within inches of our legs - very... More

I took my wife out here to see the penguins, hoping it was as good as it had been reviewed. We weren't disappointed, it was an awesome experience and the penguins get really close to you. The ladies taking the tours have a passion for the area and the penguins and are really knowledgeable. Just a tip, wrap up warm... More
