Two paradises for lovers of marine fauna are possible to enjoy during the
development of the next excursion. More than 120,000 Magellan Penguins, Cormorants, Sea Lions, Antarctic Gulls are just some of the possible species to observe in the Magdalena and Marta Islands, which are part of the “Los Pingüinos” natural monument. There we can admire the grace of these Magellan specimens in their natural habitat, true protagonists of this beautiful expedition.
In just a little more than 3 hours (roundtrip) of entertaining Sailing in a large
and safe Zodiac-type boats with a capacity of between 30 and 50 passengers, tourists can sail from Cabo Negro, 25 kilometers north of Punta Arenas. Crossing quickly the waters of the Strait of Magellan, then navigate to the block of Isla Isabel and navigate around Marta Island, where we will be able to observe the Colony of Sea Lions and Cormorants.
After 30 minutes, we will continue our trip to Magdalena Island, where we disembark and visit the largest Magellan Penguin Colony of the Southern Hemisphere. On the island you can visit “the lighthouse” in which the center of environmental interpretation is exhibited with the history of the strait and the fauna of the island.
Note: The use of canes for photographic cameras in the island is PROHIBITED, because the implement affects the penguis, especially during full reproduction cycle.
