Can I purchase some Diddle Dee jam and have it sent to me in the uk?

We'll be calling at Port Stanley this November. I know that the Falklands have a good variety of types of penguins. Can anyone tell me where I can see different breeds? (I believe there are Magellan, Rockhopper, and King penguins?)
I will be in Fort Stanley for 1 day in March on a ship tour. One of the tours involves a bus ride followed by a 4 wheel drive vehicle over peaty land, not recommended for people with back issues. Does anyone know how long the 4 wheel drive portion of the trip is, as I have some back problems, but could stand it if it wasn't too long. Thanks
does anyone know of a local birder/guide who does tours in Port Stanley
I would like to know if you have e-mail service in the Islands, and cell phone service?
Thank You! Ron.
I can't find any deep sea fishing charter companies out of Stanley. Can any one help me out. I have cruise clients that want to go deep sea fishing and the cruise lines don't offer any excursions. They will be in Stanley 04 Apr 08 from 10a to 4p with NCL. Would love some advise.
We are four adults who will be one full day (8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.) in Port Stanley while on a Cruise in February.
Does anyone have any reocmmendations of sites to see, are cabs available for hire, and are they very expensive? Can we do the penguin colonies independently?
What should one not miss? Is there a local sightseeing company anyone can recommend?
Whicht airlines fly to Stanley from Ushuaia.
I'll be in Port Stanley for 9 hours on Feb 5 as part of a cruise. I'm very interested to see some of the penguins. There are two tours on offer, one to Bluff Cove and one to Sparrow Cove, both of about the same duration (3 hrs. approx.) Is there a real difference between these two coves and if so, which one would you suggest to go to?
i´m planning going to falklands on nov or dec 2005, i´m a 26/m travel agent from argentina.
i´d like to know how much money you people suggest to carry, to start planning my budget, also i´d like to get in touch with people from/going to the islands. thanks.
my friends and i dont really know too about this island and was wondering what kind of nightlife we can expect. aslo prices of beer, food and so forth. anyone with any info
Has anybody used stamps from the Falkland Islands? does any of you receive mail from there ? i like FK IS stamps very much. Does anybody live there who has?
We arrive in Stanley at 8am on 27 DEC 04 via Princess cruise. A VT member recommended a shore excursion on her cruise for USD35 to see King Penguins. Princess is charging USD99/pp for a Bluff Cove visit. Their tour is described as a 3-hour tour... 30 minute bus then 30 minute 4WD across private land to see the rookery. This sounds very expensive to us. I am an airline employee and our trip is possible for us financially because we are travelling "standby" at a greatly reduced industry rate. Is it possible to arrange for an affordable local tour to see the Penguins? Is it possible to arrange for a local guide to show us the area.. off the beaten path with local color, including the Penguins? We are considerably younger than the other passengers on the cruise and don't relish traveling with a group of seniors.
What British food is available in the Falklands ? I presume that there must be since there are forces based there, but is this all within the base, or is it available generally on the island ? If it's not generally available do you think people would buy it if it was reasonably priced ? - Sorry, this is really a fact finding mission for my business, but information like this is difficult to get.
I suppose this is for Zweiblumen again. OK if there are no official tours for non-military personnel how much independent touring can you do on the islands. For example , could I just casually wander around Mt. Longdon to have a look at the old gun and take pictures of it. Are areas cordoned off/ patroled by the army etc..? Also do the locals mind being asked about the war? Thanks R.
can anybody tell me a little bit more about these Islands, I wanna go there next year, inform me please
Will anyone go there soon?
