Visited here today. Did the albatross and forts tour. $30.00 for both, per adult. Definitely worth it, Peter our guide was very good and we saw some lovely albatross!

Whe you are into nature and wildlife, do the albatross tour. Really informative, nice staff. We saw young and old birds breeding and flying. You get to use field glasses from the center. Also, the money (52$ p.p) goes directly into the preservation of the birds.
