Sail through the Strait of Magellan to Los Pingüinos Natural Monument and discover the southern fauna
On the Navigation Magdalena Island, you will meet the Magellanic penguin, which measures between 50 and 70 cm, is an extraordinary swimmer and spends much of its life in the water. We can find it from Tierra del Fuego to the south of Brasil.
