Penguins of Magdalena Island, Punta Arenas, Chile

May 29, 2019 Magdalena Island, Punta Arenas, Magallanes and Chilean Antarctica, Chile

While staying in Punta Arenas for a couple of days before departing from Patagonia, my family embarked on a boat and ventured across the ocean to Magdalena Island. Visiting this beautiful island and interacting with such an incredible species of animals was one of my most memorable experiences. I hope you enjoy seeing some of my photographs of the penguins of Magdalena Island.

Puerto Natales

After arriving to Punta Arenas in Patagonia from Santiago, my family drove for around four hours to Puerto Natales, a beautiful little city on the water filled with fun, casual restaurants, artsy shops, numerous dogs wandering the small streets, and lots of blustering winds. Due to the cost of staying within the national park as well as my family's desire to experience Puerto Natales, we lodged at a small airbnb in the city that was within walking distance from the heart of the city and commuted each day to various parts of the park. 

The drive from Punta Arenas to Puerto Natales consisted of beautiful views of both flat terrain and, once we approached the Puerto Natales, towering mountains, very few other cars on the single highway that led directly into the small city, a few guanaco sightings, and many sheep sightings.
