Penguin Island, home to Adventure Aquarium’s largest-ever African penguin colony, will undergo major renovations until mid-June.
As one of our most popular animals, we will make sure our African penguins can still visit with guests like YOU! Additional up close opportunities will be available throughout the day at Discovery Deck in Zone B. You can also visit our little blue penguins in Zone A.
Want to get even closer? Our popular Penguin Encounter, which allows guests a personal, up close experience, will also be available on weekends, including Fridays beginning Memorial Day weekend.
