Speed Dating at Penguin Expedition

17 Jan 2017 00:00:00

Penguin Speed Dating

Calling all single ladies and gentoo-men!

To celebrate Valentine’s Day this year, SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium has partnered with Simply Speed Dating to host the very first speed dating event at Penguin Expedition! The all-new Penguin Expedition is the world’s first penguin experience with a ride to meet sub-Antarctic penguins. Where better to break the ice than surrounded by King and Gentoo penguins?

The difference?

Each date will only have the duration of the 2 minute boat ride through Penguin Expedition to learn about their potential match and decide whether they would like to continue the relationship.

Sound cool to you?

If you're a single lady or gentoo-man (ages 22 – 34 years) looking for love then don't deal and register for this unique event and the chance to meet your potential partner!
