I would not recommend this excursion. We were suppose to set sail on a 4 hour trip to Magdalena Island to see the penguins, instead we spent 6 hours in a very uncomfortable boat sloshing around due to low tide. This novice captain knew the conditions were unfavorable and should have NEVER taken us passengers away from the pier. But instead, we were subjected to half the boat vomiting. We could not dock at the pier due to low tide and had to wait another 2.5 hours to be rescued. Wasted an entire day on that boat. Very disappointed with the way things were handled. We were promised to go to Magdalena Island to see penguins and were suppose to be given a snack. We got nothing. I would not recommend this tour.
The experience in visiting the Magellan penguin colony was quite good. The early tour was fully booked and boat a little cramped but not uncomfortable. The crew were diligent in passenger and penguin safety and the close proximity to the Penguins was particularly good for those who had not seen them before. Cruising by Marta island sea lion colony was very special and sufficient time given for pics. The interactive pirate entertainment passed the return journey happily. The biscuit and coffee snack offering was a little merger but the Captain did his best ! Thankyou
Excelente experiencia. La colonia de pingüinos es enorme y se pueden ver a muy corta distancia recorriendo el sendero marcado. Los guías Jonathan y Helen, muy amables y preparados para responder todas nuestras inquietudes
