O que você fará

Waddle into the fascinating world of our most endangered bird, off the beaten track and away from the tourist traps. Over the space of an easy, 2 hour-walk across beach, tarred road and wooded boardwalk, we will go "behind the scenes" and into secret spaces only the penguins know as we discover these amazing birds at all different stages of their lifecycle. From counting newly-laid eggs (January - March) to encountering sprightly new-born chicks (March to July) to seeing the adults in their annual moult (September to November), or just to enjoy the sight of penguins being penguins, you will learn how to tell a "she" from a "he", how to tell their age and may also participate in real-time research by helping to collect data about any new birds we encounter. We will meet a supporting cast of coastal creatures; myriad other bird species, insects, plants, reptiles and mammals. Our journey ends back at our conservation NGO headquarters.

100% of your fee for this transformative experience goes back to helping to save the penguins. Support ethical, responsible, sustainable tourism! <(")
Other things to note
If I am not available, your guide will be another penguin expert (Terry or Becca). Bring sunblock + a sunhat + sunglasses. Selfie-sticks are not permitted. The walk is generally doable in all weather

I am a life-time marine conservationist, also a widely-published journalist, author, honorary ranger, shark-loving surfer and snake wrangler. I also host the award-nominated online experience 'The Art of Penguin Conservation' on Airbnb virtual. My career as a conservationist was inspired at the age of nine when I encountered one of the first pairs of African penguins to come ashore at Boulders Beach and wrote a story about them that got published, thus beginning my journey with penguins. 37 years later and my passion for saving penguins is none diminished.
The unfinished story of the endangered African penguin is currently being written and I invite you to be a part of it...

If I am unavailable, my colleague and co-director Terry Corr will guide you. Terry is also a life-time conservationist and is the Head of Education at our NGO.

Onde você estará

Our Walk begins on historic Seaforth Beach. We will visit secret coves, pathways and annual nest sites used by penguins on our way through the national park. The walk culminates on a secluded walkway for the finale of the African Penguin story before heading back to our Centre where we began.
Note: Some variation of route may occur due to time of the year, weather and the location of penguins.

Great way to enjoy Father's Day... and what a total pleasure & delightful treat having Jon share his passion & love for penguins along with educating us to ensure future generations can appreciate the magical midday experience we had. NB NB With it a thought imagine if every business, restaurant, organisation including Airbnb who makes money from the Penguins contributed a small % towards the preservation, research and whatever else is needed to do just that for future generations : of feathered & human kind!

Such a remarkable experience learning about these beautiful and magnificent penguins with Jon. Jon has so much knowledge and is so willing to share. I really admire all of the work Terry and Jon do and I recommend this whole-heartedly.

The passion they have the penguins is contagious, and they are very knowledgable. It is definitely worth going for the walk with them rather than just paying admission and going by yourself. You learn so much more!

Well worth it. Skip the commercial Boulders Beach and get your own personal guided tour with excellent information from a genuine expert. Jon loves penguins and the environment.
