Overnight the ship traveled up the Magellan channel and set anchor at Punta Arenas, Chile. That day’s excursion started with a 20 minute bus ride and a transfer to an extremely slow boat taking another 2 hours to reach Magadalena Island, home to about 500,000 Penguins. I was able to spend about 80 minutes there taking pictures before the even slower trip back to the ship. Another group booked a fast boat, it cost considerably less, but it broke down on the way out. The evening’s departure for Ushuaia presented itself with dramatic scenery.
