Penguin Island

Colony of Humboldt Penguins

Come and join in the fun, as we allow our guests to get closer than ever before to our colony of Humboldt Penguins.

Since the opening of Penguin Island we've bred seven penguin chicks, some of which were hand reared by our aquarists behind the scenes! See if you can spot Rico, Skipper, Beaker, Custard, Barnacles, Hazel and Dangermouse when you visit!Ā 

Guests are able to walk directly through their home and watch them make a splash in their new babbling waterfall.

See how you measure up against the penguins around the world on the height chart! Are you short like a rock-hopper or larger than an emperor?
