Spring and summer constitute the blooming colorful season, which for penguins means - mating needs to get started. This is exactly the time when they are cheerful, playful and full of love, and hence all their nice natural behaviours could be best seen. If you want to take some pictures, the best time would probably be early morning and late afternoon, when the penguins leave to go to sea or come back from feeding. If you wait and plan your trip for a bit later, you might even be lucky enough to see the little penguins hatching out of their eggs!
