Pinguineras, Ancud

Must see · Outdoor Activity
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.

  • This is a must-do if in southern Chile! You are taken by boat just off shore and brought up aside the barrier islands to view two types of penguins in their natural habitat!  more »
  • Disappointed with the visit to the pingüinos. We saw very few birds. Less than 10 and far away. It was really a waste of time and money.  more »
