This tour will take you to Bertha's Beach along the East coast of East Falkland Island, home to 500 pairs of Gentoo penguins. Known to be the second largest type of penguin on the Islands, you will be able to observe them in their natural habitat and watch as they feed their young and swim in theÂ sea.
As an added bonus, on most days you will also be able to see dolphins swimming near the area's long white sandy beach. You will also have the opportunity to take photos near the penguins. Complete the tour at the Island's Historic Dockyard Museum,Â where you can learn some history about this unique island environment.Â
It's recommended that guests wear aÂ warm jacket, layered clothing, and sturdy walking shoes. The car trip to reach the penguinsÂ is 10 minutes off road, but is fairly gentle. There are toilet facilities on this tour as well.
Volunteer Point is also home to numerous Gentoo and Magellanic penguins and a large variety of other bird life, and also boasts a long white sand-beach on which you can occasionally find a Sea Lion lurking.
This is a semi-private tour for 4 people per vehicle (4x4 vehicle).
The tour is usually runs for 6 to 6.5-hours, but we can reduce this for passengers on ships that are not in port for long. This time includes two hours of travel in each direction.
The first hour of your journey travels from the pier where you came ashore to the privately owned Johnsonâ€™s Harbour farm of which Volunteer Point is a part of on gravel roads.
All of our 4x4 vehicle drivers, who will be your guides during the journey, are extremely experienced at off-road driving.
During the journey, your driver will answer any questions that you may have and tell you about sites and features on the way.
Upon arriving at Volunteer Point, your driver will advise you of any areas you can't walk in. He will tell you your departure time and provide you with your packed lunch. You are then free to wander and photograph the amazing wildlife this location has to offer.
You are asked to remain 6 meters away from all wildlife at all times to avoid causing disturbances. There are wardens in high visibility clothing positioned around the sand beach that can answer any questions that you may have at the time.
The penguins can be particularly curious by nature and will often approach you if you sit quietly observing them. The area of Volunteer Point itself is fairly flat and easy to walk. The car park is very close to the penguins too.
Upon our return to Stanley, your driver will, if time permits, give you a short tour of the town by pointing out the highlights before dropping you off at the pier where we met you in the morning, or alternatively at a location you have chosen. Museums, gift shops, and pubs are all very close and within easy walking distance of the pier.
