See these little penguins hopping up the cliff face and raising their chicks surrounded by nesting King Cormorants.
With Southern Sea Lions and Macaroni Penguins also regularly visiting Cape Bougainville, there is plenty to see and photograph.
Join this semi-private tour with 4 seats per vehicle Land Rover 4x4 and experience it yourself!
Traveling time from the Capital town of Stanley is around 2 hours, with 1.5 hours of this being on the gravel roads that link the farming communities around the Islands. The off-road section is an easy drive, relatively smooth track and suitable for most individuals to travel over.
Cape Bougainville is also often home to a number of Sea Lions, usually young males that have been forced to move out of the breeding rookeries further West at Cape Dolphin. These seals can regularly be seen sleeping on the cliff tops around the parking area, and among the Tussock Grass.
As well as the Rockhopper Penguins, Macaroni Penguins are frequent visitors, although in very small numbers, usually up to a maximum of 6 individuals during the breeding season.
Inter-breeding between the Rockhopper and Macaroni penguins isn’t unusual, and mixed pairs can sometimes be seen here raising a chick.
This is also an excellent location to watch the Rockhoppers hopping up the rock face from the sea after being unceremoniously dumped onto the rocks by the breaking waves.
For the keen photographers capturing a cormorant coming in to land in the middle of a busy rookery, or the characterful Rockhoppers going about their business, this tour is a must.
Please note that there are no restroom facilities at this location.
