Punta Arenas

Embark on this catamaran navigation to visit the penguin colonies of Magdalena Island!

Boarding from Arturo Prat Pier, we head to “Los Pingüinos” Natural Monument, located on Magdalena Island, 35 kilometers northeast of Punta Arenas. After an hour and a half sailing through the Strait of Magellan, we arrive at the island where we disembark and visit the Penguin Colony for about one hour. The trail allows you to closely appreciate protected fauna species such as the Magellanic penguin, the Dominican gull, the black-browed albatross and the imperial cormorant. After this, we return back to Punta Arenas Pier.
