You might want your tuxedo to fit in at Parque Pinguino Rey, home to a population of majestic King Penguins. This second-biggest penguin species travels from the subAntarctic conditions in search of food, and archeological finds have shown that the penguins have been frequenting the island for hundreds of years, dating back to the time of the Selknam indigenous people. Visitors are able to view the penguins from a roped-off observation deck, where you'll find signage about the development of the penguins which will help you appreciate the age of the penguins you will see. Many tour groups in the bigger, nearby cities coordinate day trips that connect tourists with this site. Plan your visit to Parque Pinguino Rey and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Tierra del Fuego trip itinerary maker.

Twelve thousand pesos for all the effort that needs to be done, but the fact that in reality are penguins on private land, make it impossible to justify this amount. The greed of the owner is the main reason for the disappointment.
Great place to see quite a lot of King Penguins. Freezing cold though! When I was there they were quite far away, so bring your best zoom lens and tripods!!
pretty much the only place in punta arenas region to see king penguins. bring long distance lenses, the view points are at least 30 meters away from were the penguins hang around
No good, 2 or 3 pinguins
Wonderful place to see the king pinguins in their natural habitat
Bah. I was expecting much more
