Eric and Shirley were excellent tour guides and really made our visit worth the time! Shirley gave us excellent information about the species ahead of time so we knew what we were doing. While we were down by the water, the penguins began coming to shore in large groups and were about 5 meters away. We then went up to the path they commonly use, and Shirley asked me to stand on the path with my legs spread apart and five penguins ran through my legs!! As the hour long tour went on, we split into smaller groups so we could get closer and ask more questions. As we walked around, Eric told us why the penguins were doing certain things and acting certain ways as we observed them. Overall, this was an incredible experience!! I'd say it's a must do for any solo traveler, couple, or family to participate in! Thank you Eric and Shirley for a great experience!

We met so many penguins. Oh my goodness. The hosts were nice and taught us a lot. I got to stand there and the penguins walked right through my legs. Magical.

Shirley was a great guide and very accommodating with views for photos and looking after the young kids. The kids loved having the penguins walk under their legs while sitting still. Even with the cold wind, we could've stayed much longer. Would definitely recommend and do again.

We had a small group and got to walk down on the beach and see the penguins up close. Fabulous tour and so much better that the Phillip Island. Thanks Shirley for a wonderful experience .
