There were lots of cormorants and few other birds. No penguins were found there. Okay, I admit, I'm not a "bird" person. Someone who is and wants to see cormorants would probably enjoy this.

As we cruised the Beagle Channel we approached this island covered with cormorants. These birds will fool you as they look like penguins from a distance. But look down at their orange feet and you will see they are not. They are quite large when they spread their wings.

This island has a lot of birds that "wants to be penguins". They look like pengus, act as pengus but are not pengus. They fly and they are not cute as pengus. Is a must seen.

It´s nice to see when you are on the boat tour, but there´s nothing special. The tours are really fast and you stay looking at the birdsfor 5, 7 minutes...

The vessel was smooth and staff very good. Not too many penguins at the colony but that could be the time of the year. The whole trip was 6 hours however there is food an drink on board you you wish to buy. The seals were interesting and despite the strong wind the whole trip was comfortable.

We took the morning Pira tour to see the penguins on the island in the beagle channel. Maybe due to the fact we have just returned from Antarctica it didn't have the same positive effect we had imagined, but for $800 pesos each I was expecting a lot more. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable, but working with limited resources.... More
