Reasons they will it

  • 45 minute experience
  • 20 minutes on the ice
  • King & Gentoo Penguins
  • Behind the scenes tour
  • Souvenir photo included
  • Sea World entry not included

This amazing experience gives them access to an exclusive behind the scenes tour of the award-winning exhibit that mimics the natural Antarctic environment of these penguins.

They'll be decked out in gloves, overalls and boots and then sent out on the ice for their very own Antarctic adventure. Here they'll meet the world's second-largest penguin species, the King Penguin, standing tall just below one metre in height. They'll also meet the King Penguin's smaller, more agile cousin - the long-tailed, red-billed Gentoo Penguin.

They'll be involved in a range of penguin activities that may include a feeding session and or a fun enrichment program (depending on the mood of the penguins). Face to face with these unique aquatic birds, they'll gain a glimpse into their wondrous frozen world.

The experience also includes a professional souvenir photograph, so they can remember their icy encounter for years to come. Give them the chance to become an Antarctic adventurer without having to leave sunny Queensland with a Sea World Penguin Encounter gift voucher!
