What happens on a penguin feeding experience?
You’ll be among our Humboldt and Macaroni penguins on the Penguin Coast beach, taking charge of the feed during our daily penguin talk.
You’ll be welcomed by one of our penguin keepers and after a short briefing, you’ll help prepare lunch for the penguins. This involves weighing out the right amount of fish and putting a vitamin tablet in their gills. It’s messy work, but don’t worry we provide gloves.
Whilst you’re behind the scenes in the penguin enclosure you can ask our knowledgeable penguin keepers all about the animals in their care.
Now comes the bit you’ve been waiting for. You’ll get to meet and feed our penguins. Our Macaroni and Humboldt penguins absolutely love feeding time!
Your penguin feeding experience will last at least 20 minutes. It includes a souvenir cuddly toy penguin to take home so you can remember this very special experience and makes a fantastic gift for children and adults alike.
