Get closer to our colony of penguins!

A once in a lifetime experience that takes you on the ice with our penguins
Time: 1.30pm (all-year round) and 3.30pm (Sep-Apr) daily
Duration: 75 minute tour
Capacity: 4 people

This experience ticket includes all day general admission to SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium!

The Penguin Passport is your ticket to a once-in-a-lifetime penguin encounter with SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium's sub-Antarctic penguin colony.
 
Suited up in your sub-Antarctic snow gear, the exclusive 75 minute tour takes you onto an icy wonderland where majestic King and cheeky Gentoo penguins waddle, hop, slip and slide along the ice right in front of you. Here you'll observe enrichment activities with the birds and have plenty of opportunities for photos along the way. 
 
Participants will also have the opportunity to go behind-the-scenes in this penguin encounter to see the penguin food preparation area as well as how this state-of-the-art exhibit maintains its chilly temperatures.

This intimate experience is limited to 4 people. We recommend booking your tickets online to avoid disappointment.
