Dolphins Watching Tour by zodiac boats

  • Duration: 10 hours
  • Departure: Every day at 6:00 AM, year-round
  • Activity Level: Moderate intensity, but still possible for everyone in general good health

Adventure in inflatable boat of the zodiac, in the area of San Isidro, in search of the beautiful Austral Dolphins, or (dolphin of Peale), sometimes we find big groups of 10, it is a complete joy to see them swimming next to the boat or in a Acrobatic jump. We could also see the colony of Sea Lions (if it is the right time of the year). Some birds will be our companions during this trip as Albatrosses and Petrels. You have to keep in mind to go on an adventure, sometimes to face a rough sea, and you have to cling to the boat, but all this is part of the navigation in the Strait of Magellan.

Between December and March some Humpback Whales visit the Cape and if the weather conditions allow, we can approach and see how they feed.

Every day at 7:00 a.m. with pick up at Hospedaje Magallanes in Punta Arenas. After an hour drive to the south of town and along of Estrecho de Magallanes, we will arrive at the starting point of our tour. You will enjoy a breakfast, meanwhile we prepare the zodiac boats and the equipment for this new adventure at the End of the World.

Be prepared, mentally, to be part of this navigation. Maybe you will have to face a rough sea and to cling to the boat, but all this is part of this adventure on the Estrecho de Magallaes. Return to the town, around 5.00 p.m.
