Excursion to the Puñihuil Penguin Colony
Be amazed by the magic and the wonderful wildlife that the Chiloé island has to offer by going on a full-day excursion.
We will begin by boarding a ferry at the town of Pargua, that will take us to the Pacific Ocean. Then, we will cross the Chacao channel for approximately 30 minutes, during which we can enjoy the sea breeze and the beautiful landscape, until we reach the Chiloé island.
Once there, we will go to the Caulín bay, sanctuary of sea birds and to the city of Ancud, where we will visit the main square, the regional museum, the marketplace and the San Antonio fort.
Later, we will head to the national monument called Puñihuil islets, the preferred observation point of sea birds. This is where we can appreciate the only place in the world where the Magallanes and Humboldt penguins cohabit.
