Our tour will start from our meeting point at 6:30 AM, taking the transport that will take us to the Embarcadero Bahía Laredo. There we will embark to travel to Isla Magdalena, located in the Strait of Magellan.
During navigation we can enjoy the beautiful panoramic views. We can see fishermen's coves, oil fields and the mythical Island of Tierra del Fuego. We can also see different species that make up the local birdlife such as skua, cormorants and black-browed albatross. Also, with a little luck, we can see southern dolphins near our boat.
We will dock at Isla Magdalena after sailing for two hours, arriving at the Los Pingüinos Natural Monument. Here we will be exploring the place where more than 120,000 Magellanic penguins live together with various species of birds and sea lions.
We will go up the paths that go from the coast to the highest part of the island, being able to see a few meters to these birds and their nests. The penguins arrive in this sector in mid-October and begin their reproduction, nesting, and change of feathers, ready to migrate north in mid-March.
In this sector is the Center for Environmental Interpretation and Faro. Going up the steep stairs of the center we can get the most incredible view of 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 hours.
