Catamaran to Beagle Channel

by Blondie44blue

Is it possible to book a trip on a catamaran to the Beagle Channel when my ship docks at Punta Arenas, rather than use the ship's excursion? Any other suggestions?

Re: Catamaran to Beagle Channel

When I stayed in Ushuaia I used canal fun for a day trek into the Tierra del Fuego park - outstanding.
The same people have a 1/2 day Canal sailing, but they do not list what time - so it depends what time the ship arrives and leaved. Their web site is:

May want to drop them a note.

Travel Tips for Punta Arenas

kiss the foot of the indian and you will return !

by globetrott

Kiss or touch the foot of the indian
sitting below the monument of Magellan
and you will return to Patagonia !
That is a custom that many people seem to follow and when you take a closer look at my photograph you will see that the foot is a lot more shining than the rest of the sculpture.
For a very long time the native population of Patagonia was simply killed like animals by the settlers and one of the justifications for that genocide was the fact that Charles Darwin had called them "real ape-men" when he came in 1832 by his ship "Beagle" to Patagonia.
You will find the Magellan - monument in the very centre of Plaza Muñoz Gamero, surrounded by local merchants selling their souvenirs etc.

Another gem at Plaza Muñoz Gamero

by globetrott

Club Militar de Oficiales - most probably the officer's club - is one of the lovely old palaces close to the Palacio Sara Braun at Plaza Muñoz Gamero. Of course you cannot enter it, but at least you can take a look into the scenic gardens and enjoy the great architecture of the building, built at the end of the 19th century, during the high time and prosperity of a few immigrants who came from Europe in order to find their luck at the end of the world.

Otway Sound Penguin Colony

by wadekorzan

There are about 10,000 couples living at this colony, though it is important to come at the right time of year to see them. The penguins arrive around September but first mate and lay eggs. Te best time to see them is in December and January. In February they start to leave as they spend 6 months away, mainly along the coast of Brazil, the Galapagos, and the Falkland Islands.

The colony is about 1.5 hours from Puta Arenas, partly on a paved road and the rest on a dirt road. O the way be on the lookout for the South American Ostrich, known as Nyandu or Lesser Rhea.

Once at the colony, there is an entrance fee of about 4 US$, and a walk of about 1 mile to the beach where the greatest concentration of penguins is located. The penguins are aptly named "Magellanic Penguins", after the great explorer who discovered the Strait of Magellan in 1519.

Pedestrains only

by kyoub

The heart of the city is the Plaza Munoz Gamero.
It is planted with a variety of large trees.
In the center of the plaza is a statue of the explorer Magellan striding into new territory, a mermaid, and two Fuegians at his feet.
It is said that if you kiss the toe of the Fuegian that you will return someday.
We could only stand at the entrance and snap pictures since they were making repairs in the park and had it roped off to traffic.

The Regional Museum

by MikeAtSea

The building was designed by the architect Antonio Beaulier in 1903 as the family mansion of the Braun - Mendendez family. The palace was donated by the family descendents and became a museum in 1983. One can see materials from the golden area of Punta Arenas, including luxurious furniture, European tapestry and other collectors items.
