and marta island
We sail through the Strait of Magellan to the Magdalena and Marta Islands. Magdalena Island receives more than 120,000 penguins each year and Isla Marta is home to more than 1,500 sea lions. We start with this adventure, after checking in at our office, we go to Laredo Bay in transfer to boarding in speedboats for 45 minutes to Magdalena Island, where we landed for 1 hour with our guide to know the natural habitat of the Magellanic Penguins, in one of the largest colonies in South America. We continue our journey to Marta Island (if the weather conditions are good) to see sea lions, imperial cormorants, Antarctic Terns and hundreds of Dolphin Gull, if we are lucky we can also see Southern Dolphins, Piebald Dolphin and Sei Whales.
