Disfrute de su propia "marcha de los pingüinos" en Isla Magdalena durante una excursión por la mañana en barco desde Punta Arenas. Tras el crucero al otro lado del Estrecho de Magallanes, llegará a esta reserva natural protegida y se maravillará ante los miles de pingüinos de Magallanes que pasean por el terreno que les sirve de lugar de reproducción. Siga a su guía a lo largo del camino acordonado que conduce hasta un faro, donde conocerá el ecosistema de la isla. Si las condiciones meteorológicas lo permiten, navegue cerca de Isla Marta y observe leones marinos y elefantes marinos.
Lindo o lugar. Muito frio, mesmo no verão. É necessário roupa adequada que compras lá em Punta Arenas mesmo. Fomos muito bem atendidos na agência em Punta Arenas. Uma van nos levou até o locam onde pegamos um barco, que levou mais ou menos 40 minutos até chegar na Ilha. Muito frio. Caminhamos próximo aos animais, o lugar é lindo, bem cuidado e os guias orientam muito bem sobre como proceder junto aos animais. Na volta da caminhada formos recebidos com café, chá e snacks dentro do barco.
Really well organised tour. Crew were great. The penguins were amazing - able to be really close. Would have liked a bit more info on the penguins- do they stay as couples throughout season? How many eggs laid etc. Had a hot drink back on board which was very welcome but was unannounced so did not know reason why there was queue to get back on.
This is a must do, bucket list type of experience if you are in the area. The trip on the boat to and from the island was exciting and the penguins were very fascinating. The tour company was excellent and they took very good care of us in a rather taxing weather area. We highly recommend.
Came to Punta Arenas to do this and was not disappointed. Bus ride to boat takes about 45 minutes or so. Then boat ride to the island.
Spend about an hour walking around the small island to the top and back to boat among these adorable creatures!!!!!!!!
There are so many of them and they run right in front of you!!! The baby chicks were too darn cute. Seeing the penguins in their own environment-digging, kissing, nurturing, scawking, sleeping, running, swimming---you will take a zillion pictures!
Hot chocolate and/coffee provided once back on boat!
Found the tour organisation a little chaotic in terms of knowing which busses to board, where we were going and how to get back. Departure peer is about 30 mins drive from Punta Arenas, crossing conditions can vary from everyone sitting on the boat's roof to everyone being confined indoors, and temperatures can be down to zero. Visit to the penguin island didn't feel long enough, even though walking the loop of the island and light house need only take 15 minutes, we could have done with more than an hour, especially towards the end when the penguins started getting friendly and coming to meet us. The boat then sales slowly around a fur seal island but doesn't stop there before returning to the peer. This activity starts early but is finished by midday, it is however the best thing you're likely to do in Punta Arenas, though it might lead to sea sickness as there's more than an hour of sailing and it can get choppy.
The tour was very good. We had chosen the hotel pick up, the driver was on time and we were comfortably transferred to the agency. After checking in, they transferred us to the pier and the trip started. It lasts for roughly 3hours, we visited the Magdalena island penguins colony and due to the good weather conditions we travelled to the Martha island and saw some sea lions, more penguins and seals. The tour guide was very well informed and answered all our questions. Pretty good information about the penguins year round life and habitat. Very much satisfied!
