In 1982 two breeding pairs settled down at the Boulders Bay. Up until now the colony has grown to a population of more than 2000 penguins. How many of them you will be able to see is closely linked to the weather conditions of course. You can also use this opportunity to swim with the penguins and enjoy the clear, turquoise water.  Depending on the weather and time of year you might also be able to see whales, seals, sharks as well as dolphins.
