  • If You want to see penguins (Magellan & ROCKHOPPERS!) you have to visit Isla Pingüino from Puerto Deseado - for me it was an experience of a life-time! We also saw dolphins, seals, cormorants, albatro...  more »
  • As well as it is quite complicated to get to Puerto Deseado and from there to Penguin Island, so also the emotion that is felt when he stepped on that island. Completely deserted presence human (except when arriving tour groups) start to explore it and cross in the 1 * part with Magellanic penguins is already exciting (in our case we had seen them in P.Madryn and Ushuaia) but the other part of the Island and see the Rockhopper penguin is exciting. One must sit, sit quietly and observe them. They were chicks with around 45 days of life, changing his coat and juveniles and adults jumping on the rocks or bathing. It was a wonderful dream come true. I hope that those who want it to arrive to do so.

  • Excellent excursion that we did with the people of Darwin expeditions, it is important to evaluate the time of year (Darwin page offers wildlife calender) to know that wildlife will be. We went in December and saw the Magellanic penguins with their calves, penguins rockhopper with their eggs as well as the skuas. You must embark on a 40-minute trip to the island and then explore it on foot. Keep in mind not to go with the fair days, it is a lot of wind and not always leave the boats. They cannot do so to those who like wildlife.
