Penguin Adventure
Magdalena & Marta Islands

The trip starts early in the morning in the city of Punta Arenas at your hotel. We’re driven to in the city of Punta Arenas at your hotel. We’re driven to the main office where we meet our boating companions coming from different points of the city then we drive out of Punta Arenas to the small Laredo Dock where our zodiac boat awaits.

After we board the zodiac, the captain talks to us about safety procedures, the weather and the itinerary. We start our bi-oceanic adventure heading north towards Magdalena Island. We’ll start to see different types of marine life hopefully including austral dolphins and whales swimming on the surface. We’ll also have a great views of Tierra del Fuego, Contramaestre island and Isabel island. When we arrive at Isla Magdalena we witness the incredible scene of more than 150,000 penguins on this small island. We're free to wander around and observe the penguins in their natural habit. 

We board the zodiac again and continue our journey to Marta Island. The ecological environment of this island is so fragile that we don't disembark but get close enough to its shores to see a beautiful colony of sea lions and other species. We circle the island admiring the marine fauna, then head south back to Punta Arenas past the same stunning scenery which welcomed us en route. Once we arrive at Laredo Dock we’re driven back to our hotel in Punta Arenas.
