Sealife Centre is just a 1 min drive away. The moment we stepped out of our car, we began hearing sound coming from the bushes around. We followed the walking track towards the beach and voila! Several penguins appeared right in front of us. We tried our best not to shine our dim torchlight directly at them as we did not have a red cellophane paper to cover the light. We also refrained from using flash on our camera when taking photos. At the same time, I had to keep reminding Jerlene and Javier to lower down their volume. These little fairy penguins were simply adorable.
It was an amazing experience to have such a close encounter with wild penguins. It's really worth sacrificing some of our sleep time to see these little fairies.
