Spoil your family with a gift voucher for Penguin Island. We offer cruises to see wild dolphins, rare Australian sea lions and the famous little penguins. Cruises include unlimited ferry transfers so you can enjoy Penguin Island at your leisure. Tickets from just $19. Winter time is penguin nesting season! This is a critical time for the little penguins as they spend more time ashore to find a mate, lay some eggs and raise the chicks. To ensure minimal disturbance during this time, WA’s Parks & Wildlife Services closes Penguin Island to the general public but have allowed Perth Wildlife Encounters to conduct strictly managed guided walks as part of our winter cruise program.
