If you're in Punta Arenas, this is a must do tour! The company offered good boats, clean and well crewed, for the 30 min +/- ride to the Isla Magdellanas. There were about 75 of us on 2 boats and we enjoyed an amazing hour walking pathways with the Magellanic Penguins. Just spectacular!

Not only is this a great tour on a fine, stable boat with Piso cocktails and the opportunity to see thousands of penguins up close, but the boat launch is very close to the airport. We had a flight out of Punta Arenas shortly after the tour. We took our suit cases on the bus to the launch area and... More

We really enjoyed the boat ride to Magdelenas Island, our visit with a whole island full of Magellan penguins (lots of fuzzy penguin chicks!), the visit to a huge sea lion colony and even some hot chocolate and cookies on the boat-- nice touch. The penguins are everywhere! Great fun to watch them waddle back and forth from the ocean... More

We contacted Solo directly and booked our ferry ride to Magdalena Island. It was a much better deal than booking with our cruise ship. Our ride was fully booked. We walked to their office from the cruise port and paid on the day. We were transported in a van to the dock, which was about 30 minutes away. We did... More

Booked this company via email well ahead of our arrival in Punta Arenas. Went into the office on the morning without any expectations knowing that this trip can get cancelled at the last minute due to the weather and because of this made sure not pay in advance. However, it seems we had strike it lucky as it was a... More

Picked up from our hotel in Punta Arenas at 0645 sharp. Travelling for around 40 minutes picking up other clients and getting to the boats. About an hours journey to the island and and then an hour walking around their island experiencing an incredibly close encounter with the penguins and their chicks. Return journey very rough so if you suffer... More

Booked this at the solo expedition office, considerably cheaper than on line, but had to wait three days for availability, that was at peak dates in December, maybe you will be luckier. We would thoroughly recommend the trip, although it at first it seemed a little disorganised, 6.30 am start leaving around 7.00am. We had calm seas and visited Isabel... More

When do you get to visit 150,000 penguins in their home? This was truly a unique and wonderful opportunity. The tour company was fine, they got us there and back safely with minimal narration. The guide was knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions. The experience spoke for itself. It is a "must do" in Punta Arenas.

My boyfriend and I had 1 day in Punta Arenas after a trip to Patagonia. We thought seeing the penguins would be a fun and relaxing trip. However we were so wrong... When we arrived we received no directions about what was going on. Eventually some guy just waved all of us onto the buses and we began our journey... More

Go directly to this company if you want to get the best out of your day on Magdalena Island and Punta Arenas. The island is teeming with these delightful creatures. The boat trip took only 45 minutes which is way less than the 2 hour ferry ride offered by the cruise ship as an excursion to the island. Our guide,... More
