Highly recommended

This was the best part of our Ocean Park visit. We went inside the penguin closure and fed them, while the other visitors could see us from the outside. Be prepared to pay for photos, as they won’t allow you to bring gadgets with you. This is pricey, but it’s worth trying at least once.

What to expect

Go beyond the regular Ocean Park shows and get up close with some of the park's most loveable creatures: the Ocean Park penguins! Meet king penguins, southern rockhoppers and gentoo penguins. Don't worry if you can't tell them apart yet; by the end of the program you'll be an expert! You'll even give the keeper a hand with feeding these hungry penguins and learn more about their daily care.
