Magdalena Island Penguins

After two hours of a beautiful sail from Punta Arenas you will reach Magdalena Island, declared a natural monument, sanctuary for Magellanic penguins. Strolling along the Island's trails you will be mesmerized by a community of up to 70,000 penguins in their natural habitat. Bask in their endearing charm as you watch them waddle, nest-build, communicate, nurture their young, and bathe. At the end of the trail you will reach the Island’s summit, where its towering lighthouse offers unparalleled panoramic views of the landscape and its surroundings.
The round-trip journey itself is an significant part of the experience, showcasing a rich tapestry of wildlife inhabiting the renowned Strait of Magellan. Look skyward to spot black-browed albatrosses, skuas, terns, cormorants, and Dominican gulls soaring gracefully. Meanwhile, playful dolphins will accompany you from the waters below and, if you’re lucky, you might get to catch a sight of whales and orcas.
