Pinguineras, Ancud

4.1
#1 of 26 in Outdoors in Isla Chiloe
Meet the local wildlife at Pinguineras, small islands that shelter penguin colonies. Just off the coast of Punihuil's beach, the islands are home to two species of penguins, the Humboldt and the Magellanic. Take a boat trip around the windy islands, enjoy the views of the surrounding area from the beach, or visit the restaurant that serves fresh seafood and empanadas. Besides the penguins, you will see many seabirds here--if you're lucky, you might spot otters, sea lions, and even a whale.

  • Neither the tourist office in Ancud nor the folks at our hotel knew, but by late March, the penguins have left the area and nobody is doing tours. A pretty beach, but no penguinos.  more »
  • Puñihuil penguins are beautiful, wear thick clothes because it is windy, they must take a motor boat that will take them towards the penguins. Prices are affordable, but I don't know if it includes tour guides in the price. There you can find pretty good restaurants and cafes :) try to get there by car, as it's not hard to get there. There are also tourist agencies in Ancud if you want to hire a tour.
