Reviews 5/5 Stars - Based on 5 Reviews

Highlights of Magdalena Island Tour

Our half-day excursion to Magdalena Island invites you to admire a spectacle created by nature: an abundant bird life, composed mainly of penguins, cormorants and seagulls, among other species.

We will sail through the Strait of Magellan until we reach Magdalena Island, home of the penguins that during the months of October and March prepare to migrate north.

Do not miss the opportunity to witness their habits and learn more about these incredible birds, walking a few meters from their nests.

It will be an experience not to be missed!

Details of Day Tours

Our tour will start from our meeting point at 6:30 AM, taking the transport that will take us to the Laredo Bay Pier. There we will take a boat to travel to Magdalena Island, located in the Strait of Magellan.

During the navigation we will be able to enjoy the beautiful panoramic views. We will see fishermen's coves, oil fields and the mythical Island of Tierra del Fuego. We will also be able to see different species that make up the local bird life such as the skua, cormorants and the black-browed albatross. Also, with some luck, we will be able to see southern dolphins near our boat!

We will dock on Magdalena Island after sailing for two hours, arriving at Los Pingüinos Natural Monument. Here we will be exploring the place where more than 120,000 Magellanic penguins live along with various species of birds and sea lions.

We will go up the paths that go from the coast to the highest sector of the island, being able to see these birds and their nests a few meters away. The penguins arrive at this sector in mid-October, and begin their reproduction, nesting and changing of feathers, ready to migrate then north in mid-March.

The Environmental Interpretation Center and Lighthouse are located in this sector. Going up the inclined stairs of the center we will be able to obtain the most incredible view of the Magdalena Island and the Strait of Magellan.

After appreciating this incredible postcard, we will be returning to our meeting point in Punta Arenas at approximately 13 hrs.
