A must do trip!

A very full day covering several enjoyable experiences culminating with the amazing Penguin Parade. Shane is an excellent and knowledgable guide.
Penguin festival!

Penguin parade was especially cool, but nice to see all the other animals as well. Nice hike and Shane was very knowledgeable and good fun.
Lovely hikes in nature

This was a wonderful day out away from the crowds and enjoying the island and wildlife. Michael is a low-key, super friendly guide who made the tour as good as it was. He was very organized and showed us where we were going, what to expect and then led us on our activities. He created a nice sense of group camaraderie and we left feeling like friends. I’ve learned from experience with other tour groups that feeling like we are a group makes all the difference. Great time and loved the Moonlit Sanctuary feeding wallabies.
