As part of the SeaWorld Texas Wildside Bloggers I was invited to a Penguin Tour. All opinions are my own.
I love the penguin exhibit at SeaWorld! It is a favorite site of mine every time we visit. I just love to watch the penguins play. Haven’t you ever wanted to just jump in there with them? Me too! I was so excited to be invited to a take part in a Penguin Tour. While we didn’t get in there with them for the tour, we were invited in the back through a side entrance where we could see them up close. They are so cute!
The penguins were very curious and at least one was always coming right up to the gate that separated us from them. We were instructed not to touch them here, but oh we could look at them and talk to them.
The kids all took turns talking to the little penguin nearest the gate. So precious!
Next we were led to a separate room where we met this little guy. I love this photo. Jason and I are the only ones looking at the camera like we were supposed to. The kids couldn’t take their eyes off the penguin as he posed for the photo!
We were able to pet this little guy! After just a few words of instruction on the proper way and places to pet the penguin, we had so much fun stroking his feathers and talking to him.
He was quite friendly and especially liked the things on the girls shirts. There were lots of squeals as the penguin poked at their shirts with his beak.
The Penguin Tour is recommended for ages 8 and older, kids under the age 4 cannot participate due to safety restrictions. Children must be at least 4 years old to participate.

Awwww, such sweet pictures. What a lovely memory for the kids.
Thank you Tina! It was such a fun time.
