Take a 15 minute boat ride to Martillo Island on Beagle Channel. Martillo Island is home to an incredible colony of Gentoo and Magellanics penguins between September and April. The rookery hosts around 1000 nests and is one of the three Magellanic penguin rookeries in Tierra del Fuego. There is also a small colony of 9 breeding couples of gentoo penguins (Pygocelis Papua) the only one in South America. Enjoy a 1-hour guided walk among the penguins in groups of 20 persons. It's truly an unique experience. The penguins share the habitat with other birds, such as skúas, petrels, cormorants, vultures and South American terns. Then you will sail back to Harberton Farm where you will enjoy free time to visit this traditional Estancia. Walk around the gardens, the historic buildings, visit the Marine Mammals and Sea Birds Museum Acatushun and admire the views of the End of the World. Transfer back to the touristic port at the end of the tour.
