Great tour. I had heard we weren't allowed to photograph- so the only photos I have are of the ocean from the lookout. Not many penguins to see on our particular visit.

From Penguin Parade Afternoon Express - Half Day Tour

Hi Audrey, so glad you had a great time, and that is correct, we do not photograph the Little Penguins because of their sensitive eyes! I hope you enjoyed observing the penguins without worrying about taking pictures (a rare treat now-a-days!) Safe onward travels and thank you for taking the time to leave a review.
