Penguins live mostly in southern Chile around Punta Arenas, but also in lower numbers on the north coast. The two most widespread kinds of these cute flightless birds are the Magellanic and Humboldt species. Penguin watching season lasts from late September until the end of March with the most popular season being Chilean summer in December and January. At this time, one might get the chance to spot their offspring. Though penguins are the main attraction, one may also encounter other wildlife including sea lions and an abundance of birds including gulls, cormorants, kelp geese, and steamer ducks.
