We had a flight at 6 pm so on 02/20/20, we decided to book 6 hour penguin tour knowing fully well that you don’t get On island. Boat stopped for about 15 min to take pictures of seals. Then on our way to penguin island, captain noticed 2 humpback whales so slowed down and followed them for about 30-40 min so we could see them from about 50 ft and take pictures. Then reached penguin colony where we got 15-20 min picture time. On our way back, saw the whales again and captain again gave us ample time to enjoy the show the whales put up for us! That made this trip totally worth it. Tour went beyond 6 hours and we made to our flight! So all good. Also, there were folks that got off for Haberton ranch visit. I would have preferred separate tour for them and giving us about 30 min on island. Without it probably a bit boring. I was a bit disappointed at less time on penguin island for photos but whale watching surely was a free bonus and ate into penguin visit time so no regrets.
Definitely worth every dollar! At the end of February, 20 degrees, amazing weather, amazing memories. Tour was most then enough. We saw sea lions, cormorans, we took a walk in the middle of the Giggle Channel (Puerto Karelo) and of course we sau the Lighthouse At The End Of The World!
It was an interesting excursion because of the very special location. We did not stop to see the sea lions although it was in the program description. The guide at the estancia was nice but speaking a poor English, meanwhile the guide at the Museum was excellent.
Everything was in Spanish and all passengers were Latin Americans. I booked this tour on an English speaking website, did not expect it to be in Spanish.
Very nice tour and everything was good organised ! The boat is comfortable, guides speaks spanish and english. We saw a lot of birds and sea lions !
