Maximum of 2 people. Suitable for ages 5+

Your experience will last approximately one hour with 20 unforgettable minutes on the Penguin Cove feeding platform which is fully accessible for wheelchair users

As well as the opportunity to learn about these fascinating animals and ask our keepers any questions you may have, your experience includes your zoo admission, an exclusive gift on the day and experience certificate.
