Penguin trip

I will be in Punta Arenas from 12/26 to 12/28 and would like to take the penguin trip/iIsla Magadelena. What company offers the best tour at that time of year? Do I need to reserved this in advance or can I arrage when I arrive. Also any other "must do" activities while I'm in Punta Arenas.

Thank you in advance.

Hello. You can go on the large ferry to Isla Magdalena offered through the Comapa link below (this large ferry leaves you less prone to seasickness than the smaller catamaran trips offered). Since you will be in Punta Arenas during a very busy time, I would book this Isla Magdalena boat trip in advance.

We didn't spend much time in Punta Arenas, but you can look at the Tripadvisor list of things to do in Punta Arenas to get some ideas. I will also attach some day trips in the area offered through Comapa. Hopefully, other people with more experience in Punta Arenas will be able to help you better.

Good luck.

Hi Elizabeth,

You have helped me with my W trek and now giving good advice for our short stay in Punta Arenas. Do you happen to know how late the buses leave from Punta Arenas to Puerto Natales. I may want to leave a day earlieer if I can get in the penguin trip in the morning then take the bus trip in late afternoon. That would leave us with an additional day in Puerto Natales with more things to do. Again much appreciated!

Hi again. You can check both Bus Sur and Buses Fernandez for their schedules from Punta Arenas to Puerto Natales. The last bus to Puerto Natales that I can find is the Bus Sur bus at 21:00.

Good luck.
