Puñihuil Penguin Colony

One of several locations to visit penguins around Patagonia, Puñihuil Penguin Colony is the only place in the world where Humboldt and Magellanic penguins nest side by side. You can take a half-day zodiac tour of the colony, located on the island of Chiloé, around 17 miles southwest of the Gulf of Ancud. 

Embarking on an adventure cruise around the Magellan Straits and Tierra del Fuego is another popular way to see penguins, or you can take a trip to Peninsula Valdes where you can see a colony of breeding penguins and go whale-watching for the day.
