In January-February we did our much anticipated trip of a lifetime. We did a trip around South America, including crossing over to Antarctica. We started in Buenos Aires, visited Iguazu Falls, and then took a cruise. We made our way down to Antarctica and then back up again, ending in Santiago, Chile. One of the "stops" on the way was...

This was our second visit to a rookery during our S.A. cruise and, while we enjoyed it, it certainly was not our favorite. The ferry/boat ride from the dock to the island was long ... very long which didn't help. Once we arrived, the wind whipping across the island was strong enough to knock you over. Granted, there are lots... More

We visited Punta Arenas as part of a cruise around South America. Our day tour was through Solo Expeditions and a number of passengers from our ship accompanied us. We meet at the tour office in town and departed at 10:15am. We had a great day, the weather was sunny and warm, the straight calm perfect for a boat/zodiac ride.... More

I guess you have to go at the right time do the year but we saw thousands of penguins mid March. They were everywhere and didn't seem timid. There is a walking path roped off to walk around and view these little cuties. We went with SOLO and unfortunately there was very little English explanation but we still enjoyed the... More

Ever walked among thousands of penguins in their natural habitat. Ever had to stop walking to let a group of penguins cross the path in front of you? Ever seen a penguin peck someone's heel because it was standing too close to its home? The day we went, the wind was blowing between 60-80 mph, and penguin life went about... More

I loved crossing the historic Magellan Straits but even better than that were the thousands of Magellan penguins waddling around, diving into the water, or their nests. Some of the young had not shed their baby feathers so the colony was not yet ready to depart. Very lucky to see them at the end of March! Visitors have to stay... More

I booked the penguin tour thru a US operator (Adventure Life) that was handling my entire Patagonia trip and frankly was disappointed, although that's partially because of my expectations, not the trip/tour itself. The Isla Magdalena trip was with Solo Expediciones on a small boat. 1. I paid $125 for the trip, which would have cost only $85 if booked... More

The first time I had seen penguins in the wild. A huge island colony, non migratory, that is protected. In the Straight of Magellan about a two hour ferry ride north of Punto Arenas, Awesome.

The penguins were great and certainly worth seeing. I have some safety concern though. The boat can carry 40 or so people. All windows were sealed close. There were two narrow doors, one in the front and one at the back, to get people out in case of emergency. (see photo) Moreover, there was virtually no deck space on the... More

We took a trip out to see the penguins on Isla Magdalena with Solo Expediciones. We reserved spots a few days in advance and the office responded quickly. The tour was well organized, although minimal information on the penguins and island was provided. Very cool trip and decent value. The boat ride was very very choppy but we never felt... More
