Trip Planner: South America / Argentina / Patagonia / Province of Tierra del Fuego / Ushuaia / Isla Martillo
Catch a boat to Isla Martillo, a small island home to thousands of penguins where you can get close and observe them in their natural habitat. A guide takes you through authorised trails where you can get as close as 3 m (10 ft) to Gentoo and Magellanic penguins. Look out for other animals such as the penguin's main predator, the skua bird. Importantly, know that only one tour company allows you to land on the island to see the penguins, other tour companies can only offer you views from the boat. Use our Ushuaia online tour planner to add Isla Martillo and other attractions to your Ushuaia vacation plans.

The boat is very comfortable and warm, but what had not been very clear to me when I closed the tour, was how much the whole path takes. Very long time. 1h30 forward navigation and another 1:30 on the way back. Muuuuito cold on the island.... Go well wrapped. We went with Piratour-the very friendly and considerate guide... Gave several explanations about the island and the Penguins.
