You can buy tickets for this day tour at the Comapa office in Punta Arenas or right at the ferry terminal on the day when you want to take the trip. In peak season I would recommend buying it beforehand.
The boat is a ferry with one part that is closed and heated with seats like in a train. Make sure to get in front of the line to get a window seat. Coffee, cocoa and snacks are available for purchase (tourist prices).
The boat tour itself was a little less than I had expected (thought one would see more of the land/ surroundings but the straight was much broader than I had thought. Great explanations about the penguins though both in English and Spanish. Bring sea sickness pills if you suffer from it as the boat ride can be quite bumpy.
The boat tour takes 2h each way, while being 1h on the island.
Really good value for money and I loved the trip!
