Different penguins waddle at different speeds.
And some might waddle a lot but take smaller steps. They have a shorter stride than others of the same species. Consequently they might waddle vary fast, but travel only a relatively short distance.

Baby penguins can't waddle as fast as grown-up penguins. Well, they might actually waddle a lot, and quite frantically, but they don't get very far!

Adult Adélie penguins can move up to about 3.9 kph (2.4 mph) when waddling.
Adult Emperors penguins have a maximum waddle speed of about 2.8 kph (1.7 mph)
