Penguin & Puffin Coast

Penguin and Puffin Coast is the chilly habitat where four different species of penguins and two types of puffins make their home in breathtaking rocky cliffs and frigid water. This magnificent, frigid area opened in 2003, and it was the first open-air penguin habitat of its kind in North America. The space features specialized lighting that stimulates the species' natural habitats in the wild.
