Obviously, nature rules along the Strait of Magellan. In addition to colonies of Magellanic penguins, the strait is frequented by schools of Commerson’s and Peale’s dolphins, southern elephant seals, South American sea lions and southern fur seals as well as pods of humpback whales, the latter especially prevalent in Francisco Coloane Coastal and Marine Protected Area. Skyward, be on the lookout for black-browed albatross, Antarctic giant petrels and Andean condors. Keep that camera ready!
