Pinguineras, Ancud

4.1
#1 of 26 in Outdoors in Isla Chiloe
Meet the local wildlife at Pinguineras, small islands that shelter penguin colonies. Just off the coast of Punihuil's beach, the islands are home to two species of penguins, the Humboldt and the Magellanic. Take a boat trip around the windy islands, enjoy the views of the surrounding area from the beach, or visit the restaurant that serves fresh seafood and empanadas. Besides the penguins, you will see many seabirds here--if you're lucky, you might spot otters, sea lions, and even a whale.

  • How is usual every year we see penguins, it is a very nice experience especially for children. Unique only in Ancud.

  • Is quite a ride from Castro, where we were staying, but still a fun day. Visit ann the rocks is very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. One would also have to speak English. What a pity. Don't make the mistake of the shortcut is not a dirt road where an ordinary car. Row so via Ancud along the coast

  • Easy access location even in rainy day. All very well organized considering be a roadside beach location. Access to inflatable boats, very spacious and well maintained, if the through cars to leave the tourists at the border. You get on the boat without getting wet. All very safe, not boat out if all are not with the life jackets. Are five boats that make a maximum of five outputs each on the basis of the environmental control and protection of animals. The explanations are detailed and good-natured. Program for all ages.
