Coquimbo, Chile - Penguins

Recommended Posts

Has anyone done a tour out of Coquimbo, Chile to see Penguins out of LaSerena to Isla Damas? I see one through ToursByLocals which is full the day we are there (Dec 22).

Just curious if there are any other Tour operators who can accommodate us?

I am asking to local tour operator if they are available to a tour to Isla Damas to see penguins


Another posibility is going to " Isla de los Pinguinos " in front of Cachagua beach , about 80 Km north from Valparaiso,,,,You take a boat from Zapallar beach and the fishermen make a round trip to the island to see penguins,,,if you need more information you could contact privatedriversantiago@hotmail.com,,,best regards


Thank you, I did locate a local tour operator but they have advised me that due to the distance from the Port, it is too far for us to be back before 15:00. I guess I'll have to miss the Penguins this trip!
