Penguin Encounter


At Penguin Encounter you can not only see penguins, but puffins too. Watch them from the moving platform splashing, waddling, wading and grooming, or go up to the observation area to take a closer look. Their enclosure is air-conditioned, so no matter how hot it gets in the central Florida sunshine, the penguins are perfectly relaxed and "chilled-out" in their home.


Behind the glass, you can even see the puffins and penguins swim, their webbed feet putting them in their element as they seem to fly through the water. If you see an educator inside Penguin Encounter, be sure to ask questions to learn more about these beautiful and quirky animals.
