Ervaar uw eigen 'mars van de pinguïns' op het eiland Magdalena tijdens een ochtendtour per boot vanuit Punta Arenas. Na een rondvaart door de Straat Magellaan komt u aan in dit beschermde natuurgebied, waar u de duizenden Magellaanse pinguïns kunt aanschouwen die druk bezig zijn op het kiezelterrein dat dient als hun broedplaats. Volg uw gids over een omheind pad naar een vuurtoren, waar u meer leert over het ecosysteem van het eiland. Indien het weer het toelaat, vaart u langs Isla Marta om zeeleeuwen en zeeolifanten te observeren.

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.

Tour was great. Highly recommend. I would not book through Viator, it's much lower at any of tour places there. Much lower for the same tour.

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!
Do it!

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.

Very nice trip, only place where you get so close to the penguins. Crew was nice, coffee and cookies were offered. We also were taken to Isla Martha to see the sea lions.

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!

Overall this was a great trip. Would only be better if there was more time on the island. We had an hour.

We were picked up at our hotel at 6:20 AM, driven 5 blocks to the office. We did some paperwork, then boarded busses at 7AM for a 30 minute drive to the dock. The boat must have left the doc around 8AM. The water was calm so the ride was fine. The boat was comfortable, seemed safe, and the crew was amiable. We had one hour on the island. We went another half hour to Santa Marta Island to see the sea lions, but did not get off the boat for that. Santa Marta Island is about a half hour going away from the dock, so the ride back was about an hour. We were on land around 11AM, and in our hotel at 12:10.

Penguins were everywhere on Magdalena Island. Several people had huge cameras, but they were not necessary since the penguins were often within 10 feet or less of us. You need to stay on the trail, but the penguins cross the trail all the time. If you get too close, they will peck your shoes. Be sure to spend some time watching the penguins as they enter and exit the water - they look pretty silly. We also saw baby sea gulls that were cute.

The sea lions were far away so the views of them on Santa Marta Island were quite distant and not as impressive.

Overall a 5 star rating for the fantastic views of the penguins. A fun and memorable morning.
