4.6/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web
Catch a boat to Isla Martillo, a small island home to thousands of penguins where you can get close and observe them in their natural habitat. A guide takes you through authorised trails where you can get as close as 3 m (10 ft) to Gentoo and Magellanic penguins. Look out for other animals such as the penguin's main predator, the skua bird. Importantly, know that only one tour company allows you to land on the island to see the penguins, other tour companies can only offer you views from the boat.
