Welcome to Bluff Cove Lagoon Falkland Penguin Tour
We invite cruise ship passengers on our exclusive family owned and operated tour to see penguins in their natural environment in the wild. The Lagoon is 45 minutes from Stanley in the Falkland Islands, on our private sheep and cattle ranch - Bluff Cove Farm.
Home to over 3,000 Gentoo Penguins, a small growing colony of King Penguins, presently with 10 breeding pairs together with chicks and juveniles, Magellanic Penguins and an abundance of other spectacular wildlife; it is a beautiful pristine wilderness beach and can only be reached by four-wheel drive vehicles on an exciting safari. The tour is an experience not to be missed! Passengers are pampered from pier to penguins and back. Home-baking and delicious local flavours are served with live music in the legendary beach-side Sea Cabbage Café. By the Café is the museum telling the story of the farm and Falkland life. So much more than just a penguin tour; it is also a fabulous combination of Falkland hospitality and the Islands’ characterful pioneering heritage. Enjoy adventure in comfort. Our passion is regularly rewarded by guests saying the tour was the highlight of their cruise
