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.

From November to 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.
