    Visit Magdalena Island from Punta Arenas with us.

    Magdalena Island is located in the center of the Strait of Magellan, north of Punta Arenas and is one of the largest Magellanic penguin colonies in Chile with more than 60,000 pairs of these graceful birds. The excursion begins by crossing the waters of the mythical Strait for approximately 2 hours. Once on the island, we will be able to take a walk among hundreds of penguins that will cross our path. The time spent on the island is one hour. The total duration of the excursion is approximately 5 hours.
