Spectators are more than welcome to enjoy the beautiful beach, enjoy a coffee at the Pengos Café or take a ferry trip (or just walk the sandbar) across to Penguin Island to view the beautiful Fairy Penguins.

Weather

During November and March the weather is fairly consistent and we do normally have sea breezes every afternoon. If there is heavy rain, the lesson will need to be rescheduled and we will call you to arrange another mutually agreeable time.

Please make sure you come in your bathers or boardies and bring a towel and wetsuit or rashy if you do feel the cold (although a t-shirt will suffice). Please ensure that you are wearing sunscreen during the lesson.
