For all you nature lovers, this is a must see. One of the largest nesting sights of the Magellanic penguins can be visited while you are in Punta Arenas. It is a two hour ferry ride to get there but well worth the time.
They arrive on the Isla Magdalena in October, mate, raise their one or two babies, then return to sea by March.
Book this tour with a travel agency near the plaza. The ferry does tours on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.
