What to Expect What to Expect

Depart from our hotel in Punta Arenas (if option is selected) and travel towards Magdalena Island, one of the largest penguin colonies in Chile, with an estimated population (during the months of November to March) of over 150.000 specimens of Magellan Penguins, located right in the middle of the Strait of Magellan, 35 kilometers north from the City of Punta Arenas.
Early in the morning we start with this unparalleled adventure, after checking in, we head to Laredo Bay to board speedboats. This excursion begins through the waters of the mythical Strait, sailing the same route made by the brave explorers of the end of the world, such as, Sir Francis Drake, Pedro Sarmiento de Gamboa, Hernando de Magallanes and Charles Darwin, among others.
The natural riches of this island invite us to admire an impressive spectacle of wild life. Magdalena Island was declared a National Park in August 1966 and re-classified as natural monument in 1982.
We navigate 45 minutes to Magdalena Island, where we  stay for 1 hour with our guide to know the natural habitat of the Magellanic Penguins in the largest colony of South America. We continue our journey to Isla Marta to see sea lions, imperial cormorants and hundreds of southern gulls. 
Depending on the luck we will be able to see Austral Dolphins and Toninas Overa.
To protect wild life, Marta Island is only circumnavigated to admire and photograph the Colony and the diversity of marine birds that live there. However in Magdalena Island it is possible to disembark for about one hour, to walk and to interact with the colony. 
We continue our tour to the lighthouse, from where we will have a great panoramic view of the island and surrounding areas. Return to our hotel in Punta Arenas.
