Penguin Cam

Presented by Alaska Airlines

There’s always something exciting going on in the big Dan and Vi McKinney Penguin Habitat in Africa Rocks, home to a large colony of African penguins. The spacious Penguin Beach features a cobblestone beach, a gigantic 200,000-gallon saltwater pool, nesting areas, and rockwork that mimics the granite boulders found at Boulders Beach in South Africa.
