How close to the Penguin's eye level is the hide, as it's only worth taking photos if you're at a similar level to the Penguin.

the hides vary in height but the photo opportunities are very good. we first got close up to the penguins in the sanctuary area. then we took the bus over to the west side and there are hides & a network of 'open tunnels' right across the cliff tops and also open areas allowing views of the beach.

There are a series of hides from which to view the penguins, how close you get depends on the conditions. You are at about eye level.
