We had booked, paid, and received a voucher for the Full Day Penguin tour months ahead of our departure. When we arrived in Punta Arenas, we called to confirm pick up time as they never followed up with us after sending us the Voucher. The call we received was shocking: at 10 pm: THEY DIDN'T ACKNOWLEDGE our reservation and we had to prove that we had paid and send the copy of the communications with them. Even then, we were told that they had no space for us and they had to contact another agency to see IF they could fit us. We got lucky and were able to go with a different agency. We got the news at midnight and had to be up by 6:30 to get ready by 7:30 am pick up. I wouldn't trust this company.

It only happened to you, we have never had this situation. We still solved the problem and since we did not have the minimum number of passengers, we helped you find another Agency.

We were up early to get to the boat. Make reservations in advance because each bus load of visitors is carefully scheduled - and no more! We walked along carefully marked paths. Park rangers were strategically around the island - what a mass of bird life. Penguins nest in Burroughs and mate for life! It is extraordinary experience.

We booked this through Trip Advisory and were quite pleased over-all. It is really a unique opportunity to see King Penguins. It was a bit confusing as we booked through Trip-Advisor, who used Viatour, who used the Punta Arenas tour company Patagonia Full, who then put us on the tour of Viento Del Sur. This caused some confusion in the morning as we had checked in and confirmed our pickup at our hostel but the tour company ended up coming at 7:00 am instead of the 7:30 that we confirmed. Aside from that all went as promised. They brought us over and took the ferry to Porvenir, where we visited some local sites including a very interesting and informative local museum. We stopped here for a buffet lunch for a very affordable extra price. Afterwards we drove the 100km or so down a dirt road to find the penguins. The area is nicely controlled with set walkways to protect the penguins; it does mean that they are a bit far away but it was still really awesome to see them and they have telescopes available at the "blinds". It was amazingly windy there to the point that it took your breathe away and I think that is relatively common. The ride back is longer because they use the other ferry at Punto Delgado. The wind there was also a problem as the ferry had been shut for a couple of hours before we got there. We had to wait for them to start running again but our guides did a great job talking our way onto the first ferry across. On the way back we also got to stop at a ship-wreck and learn some more local history. It was a long day but well worth it.
