Park is closed today. We spoke to the very friendly parkranger:

- The road down to the shore is just open when it is dry. So they check the street every day and decide than if they open the dirt road for public or not.

- Penguins are gone during this time of the year (they will spend winter in Brazil). Maybe you can see a few lonely ones but the most of them are not here anymore.

Report Check-In

Road was open today. Seemingly shuts for bad weather, no significant road work being done. Road is gravel and you can definitely slide if not careful. Penguins still changing feathers. Drive to penguin sendero start about 30 minutes, walk for us was 25 minutes. You must leave the park no later than 6/6:30pm, leave the penguins at 5pm. Great stop!
