Early in the morning, we’ll depart from our hotel in Punta Arenas and make a brief stop at the main office to meet our new travel companions.
Then we'll board the Zodiac, where we will listen to the captain explain safety procedures, the weather, and the day’s itinerary. We will start our oceanic adventure by heading north towards Magdalena Island where we’ll start to spot different types of marine life such as austral dolphins and whales. Here we’ll also have a great view of the islands of Tierra del Fuego, such as Contramaestre and Isabel. After arriving at Isla Magdalena, we will witness more than 150,000 penguins as we wander around and observe the penguins in their natural habitat.
After spending a bit of time on the island, it's time to board the Zodiac again and continue our journey to Marta Island. The ecological environment of this island is so fragile that we won’t disembark here but we will get close enough to see a beautiful colony of sea lions and other species. We’ll circle the island to admire the marine fauna, then head south back to Punta Arenas. Once we arrive at Laredo Dock, we'll be driven back to our hotel in Punta Arenas.
