Penguin Expedition Boat Ride

This immersive experience allows guests to get up close and personal with spectacular King and Gentoo Penguins during a captivating, sensory and educational journey.

Free with your SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium ticket, the Penguin Expedition Boat Ride is open from 10.30am - 3.30pm during attraction operating days. 

Explorers will be surrounded by penguins and experience a flurry of snow, whistling winds and the stunning southern lights, before arriving at the Macquarie Island Explorer Hut where they learn more about life as an explorer on the remote island. 

Alongside the Penguin Boat Ride, guests can also get up close to SEA LIFE Sydney’s colony of Sub-Antarctic penguins at the viewing windows, observing the penguins both diving through the water and waddling on the ice.
