Home to the majestic King Penguins

VOLUNTEER POINT

 

Guided Tours

 

Volunteer Point is a stunning wildlife destination at the extreme north eastern tip of East Falkland and is the home to three species of penguins (King, Gentoo and Magellanic) as well as a number of other endemic and non-endemic bird species.

 

 

You will be met at the Jetty by one of our team and taken to your vehicle. Your driver/guide will be an experienced off-road driver and your vehicle will be a suitable 4x4 for this journey.

 

 

We depart from the pier and head north to the privately owned Johnson’s Harbour farm of which Volunteer Point is a part. This part of the journey is on a combination of tarmac and gravel roads and we pass through many of the battlefield areas of the 1982 conflict, which your driver will inform you about, as well as our stone runs – amazing river of stone formed post glacial.

 

 

The off-road part of your journey starts at Johnson’s Harbour farm as you head eastwards for the remaining 12 miles to Volunteer Point. This part of the journey can be quite bumpy.

 

 

Arriving at Volunteer Point, your driver will provide you with a conservation briefing and advise you of your departure time. You will be provided with your packed lunch and then be able to enjoy your free time among the wildlife at the beautiful place.

 

 

There will be Wardens in high visibility clothing positioned around the sand beach and penguin rookeries that can answer any questions that you may have at the time. These Wardens are also there to ensure that you do not unintentionally get too close to the wildlife or enter areas that you are not permitted to. Please listen to their advice when given.

 

 

Time permitting, upon your return to Stanley your driver will give you a short tour of the town pointing out the highlights before dropping you back at the Jetty for your tender back to your ship, or at a location of your choosing for example the Museum, gift shops, etc, all very close and within easy walking distance of the Jetty.
