On our Falkland Islands tours, days are spent spotting wildlife from boats, exploring the islands' white sandy beaches, and visiting small communities, historic sites, and local farms. The Falklands Islands can be explored on a dedicated tour of the Falklands, or from many cruise ships on their way to Antarctica that stop and spend a day or two in the Archipelago. For a complete Falklands experience do a dedicated trip like Falklands Quest where you’ll see a myriad species of seabirds, and varied marine mammals such as elephant seals, sea lions, dolphins, and orcas. You want to see penguins? We'll spot King Penguins, Rockhopper, Magellanic, Gentoo, and, if we're lucky, some Macaroni penguins.

Favorite Wildlife Watching Islands of the Falklands
Sea Lion Island
The southerly-most inhabited island and one of the smallest in the Falklands archipelago, Sea Lion Island may have the highest wildlife density in the islands. Forty-seven different species of birds, Elephant Seals and yes, Sea Lions, will be spotted.
Still an active sheep farm and was the site of the first British settlement in 1765, the highlights here are penguins and the black-browed albatross colony which stretches to the narrow sandy isthmus known as The Neck.
Possibly the most picturesque of the outer-lying islands, it attracts many small birds such as Black-chinned siskins, the Cobb’s wren, and the Falklands thrush.
