Luckily seas calm enough for us to tender. Had to anchor 2 hrs earlier and departed earlier. Windy, barren, British outpost. Took 4x4 out to penguins....Very bumpy no roads, just mud holes! Saw king penguins and chicks. Great small local souvenir shop with complimentary tea Cafe! Good selection of souvenirs, but most made in UK for sale in Stanley?! Weather storm came in quickly, didn't have time to have a pint in town after tour or even spend £ in small gift shop.

Long waits for tenders to shore (as everyone gets off) so get up early. Super interesting, quaint British town that has great walk destinations. Fish & chips with a beer is a must. Step inside the phone booth, after you visit the churches and do a phtoto bomb at the whole bone arch.

Loved seeing the penguins in Bluff Cove. Locals were very friendly. Hated tendering.

Volunteer point has the large king penguin colony, as well as magellenic and gentoo penguins. DO NOT miss this, and save more than $100/pp by booking tour locally.

Delightful port to visit, but just not long enough to do more than a walk round the town. We self guided.

Bluff Lagoon was not too far away and had great penguins.

The Volunteers Point excursion was great to see all the penguins. However, to charge over $450 per person for a bumpy Land Rover ride and an uneatable lunch is unacceptable. The driver did not know much of the economics and wildlife of the islands.

Went on trip to see penguins (which were fantastic), but our driver didn't tell us much of anything. She was always in a hurry and never spoke unless questioned and then only short answers.
