Boulders inSimonstown is a lovely place to visit and see the penquins. Remember that the smell is not too wonderful and we would definately not use it to create a new perfume. We were lucky to see a number of youngsters, some busy moulding and the rest just basking in the sun or taking a dip. My friend went to swim at the boulders beach and he and his little daughter of 9 was lucky enough to swim with a penguin. a great experience for them and she could not stop talking about it. It is quite safe to swim with them.
