      Inside Look Surprise Tour! This tour includes special private viewing of the penguin beach and nesting area. As you stroll through these lush settings, it may be hard to believe that one hundred years ago, this land was almost barren. The only exception is dinnertime. Its teeth appear by the time it is 14 weeks old, and mother and cub spend much less time using their den. Whether you want to see all the animals, take a special tour, or enjoy the diverse gardens, plan your visit in advance.
