All reviews king penguins long drive their natural habitat day trip punta arenas well worth the trip ferry ride south georgia pair of binoculars chilli colony stops pinguins birds disturbance magellan protection
We took the ferry from Bahía Azul and then drove all the way out to see the penguins. Yes it’s quite far and yes it’s somewhat pricy. But you can see the king penguins in the wild!! The ranger was very kind and knowledgeable, gave...More
As were are on a birding trip to Chile, it couldn’t be missed. The setup was sensitively managed, with a pleasant knowledgeable introduction at the start.
The views of the penguins was excellent through our own binoculars, but not sure the fixed telescopes were much...More
We did this as part of an excursion from Punta Arenas. The trip ended up being 14 hours, most of which was spent in a mini van. The penguins were definitely the main attraction and are worth a visit. I would book in advance as...More
It was an 11 hour day for roughly 30 mins of penguin viewing from 50 yards away behind a wooden fence.
Sure they were neat and the babies were cute, but it felt like being the butt of a joke. Literally, it’s 2 converted shipping...More

We went there early April 2018, when it was not possible any more to access the famous Penguins Island... Our 2 daughters (6 and 9) were desperate to come that far and not see pinguoins. So we...More
We traveled as a couple on our way back from Torres del Paine to Punta Arenas. As we were self-driving during this trip, we planned to head back to
We started around 6 AM from Puerto Natales and got to Punta Delagada (About 3.5 hours)...More
I passed through on my way to central Tierra de Fuego. It's also a worthwhile destination when on your way to San Sebastian in Argentina and beyond, or as a doable trip from Porvenir, but I wouldn't recommend it as a full day trip from...More
I joined the tour organiser, Tourismo Selknam to go on a day trip to visit the King Penguin colony reserve.
It is awesome. This one of the nearest place from Punta Arenas that you can view King Penguins besides South Georgia. It is an incredible...More
Penguins, penguins, penguin. That was the purpose of our South America visit. We were not disappointed at Parquino Rey. Perhaps we could not walk among them as we could in the Falklands. But should we have? I enjoyed that we were not intrusive at Parq...More
A great chance to - responsibly - observe King Penguins in their habitat. Some reviews mention the visit isn't worth the long trip and that the penguins are too far away. While some other places might allow you to get closer, or even walk among...More

Estimado Oliver, para visitar el Parque tiene 3 opciones, las cuales son arrendar un vehículo, contratar un Full Day Tierra del Fuego en Punta Arenas y viajar de peatón en el ferry contactando a un servicio de transporte en Porvenir, esta última ocurre cuando el ferry tiene dos cruces y en temporada alta, donde hay mayor cantidad de visitantes. Le recomiendo que revise esta opciones y si decide contratar un tour o servicio de transporte cotice en distintos lugares, ya que existen precios y servicios diferentes. Saludos desde Bahía Inútil.

It’s a breeding colony, which means they are there all year round. However, I think opening times are limited in winter. If it’s closed you may not be able to access the area where the penguins are. Why not give them a call... More
It’s a breeding colony, which means they are there all year round. However, I think opening times are limited in winter. If it’s closed you may not be able to access the area where the penguins are. Why not give them a call or send them an email? Contact details can be found at their website.
