  • wonderful place to go with kids. They love the penguins and the observation centre is well managed and take care of. The information given by the presenter are also good. The island is cute and fun. the beach is safe and fun for kids. the glass bottom ride was lucky for us coz we saw a fleet for 4/5 dolphins swimming around us and also the pelicans as well as sea lions. that was indeed lucky wild sighting for sure. but overall very good day trip for kids
