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.

Se valora la iniciativa de poblar con pinguinos Rey este lugar. Se nota el cariño por ello. Falta una cafeteria en la estación de tickets y un lugar para refugiarse a descansar alejados del viento. Mu... more »The initiative of King penguins populate this place is valued. It shows affection for this reason. Missing a coffee shop in the station tickets and a place to retreat to rest away from the wind. Very bad experience with PATAGONIA ToUR. A bus scholar who was not conditioned to transport 27 adults, without air conditioning, without curtains, all tight, the arrival of return should be at 10 p.m. and arrived at 24 hours by conditions of this mini bus to ride on roads of stone. Please don't take this cimpania since they charge 55 thousand not including anything more than the entrance to a Museum of 1 thousand pesos and the ferry an entry, else must pay it you. I've had to put a jacket on the window to not be for more than three hours with the single in the face.
Very emotional to see this beautiful big penguins in their natural habitat, hopefully undisturbed by many tourists who can luckily stay at an appropriate distance from them (30-50 meters). Bring your zoom, or binoculars to get the details.. Enjoy the rest. Nice gift shop and very friendly park ranger.
Card machine wouldn’t work and they wouldn’t accept payment in US dollars or Argentinian Pesos. There was no where to change money between San Sébastien and here! We were cycling from here to Porvenir and when I asked for water I was told no! Never been refused water anywhere before! Spoke to other people who did go in and they were disappointed.
They take excellent care of the penguins. You can view them from a distance, but definitely worth it. Bring your own binaculars! 🔭
Isolated lonly place. But only place you can see the king penguine by car and walk.Better to go with rour gaide.
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!!
