We did book a private excursion in the Falkland Islands to see the King Penguins. They were 2 1/2 hours out in the middle of nowhere. We drove in jeeps on no roads but thru fields and hills. That was the first time I was scared to death on the way back we would not make the last tender. The tour was 1/2 the price of the ship and fabulous. We did make it by about 5 min. You just have to think about it long and hard and what you are willing to risk. That last 20 min in the jeep I was a nervous wreck D It is not cheap flying out of the Falklands!
