Martillo Island Penguins Day Trip

13 reviews | 153 travellers
The views of the glaciers, like the Perito Moreno very well, the food excellent, everything very well organized, punctual in bringing the food. The pick-up went well, but we had to wait for other passengers who were coming in another vehicle, and we spent a long time waiting for them. That made us the last ones to get to the boat and we had to sit apart and in holes, for example a couple sat one at the window and the other in the corridor, they left us the center, the location was complicated.

Martillo Island Penguins Day Trip

The tour departs from the Ushuaia tourist dock, ready to embark on a peaceful boat trip through the Beagle Channel, and an unforgettable day among the local black and white residents exploring the waters of Paso Chico.

During the cruise, we will sail alongside to Bird Island, where we will see birds such as skuas, black-browed albatrosses, steamer ducks, geese, kelp gulls and gray gulls.

We'll continue very close to the Isla de los Lobos, 'Wolf Island', home to one- and two-furred sea lions, and we'll see the Les Éclaireurs lighthouse. The boat trip will continue to the famous Martillo Island, where we'll admire its penguin colony. Did you know that this is home to one of the most famous Magellanic penguin colonies in the world? We will also be able to see Gentoo penguins.

After sighting the penguin colony on Martillo Island, we will head for the tourist pier in Ushuaia, where we will return after four and a half hours. 

On the way back we will be able to see from the boat historical places such as the Túnel and Remolino ranches and the semi-sunken hull of the Monte Sarmiento ship.
