We will pick you up at your hotel to leave La Serena towards the north, to Punta de Choros cove. That way we will get closer to visit the Humboldt Penguin Reserve & Damas Island. We will begin a boat trip to Choros Island where, without disembarking, we will have the possibility to identify the different birds’ species that inhabit there, like the Humboldt penguin, cormorants and pelicans, among others. In addition, we will see sea lions, chungungos and, if we are lucky enough, bottlenose dolphins.

After that, we will go to Damas Island, where, from the boat, you will see the white sand beaches and clear waters, besides seeing more penguins and other birds. After that, we will take our boat to begin the return to La Serena, have lunch and end our tour.

*The pickup is made only in downtown La Serena and in the Hotel Enjoy Coquimbo. After making your booking we will indicate if it is inside the downtown pickup area. If you are staying in Coquimbo or outside downtown area, we will set a meeting point.

*You will be able to disembark only from Thursday to Sunday (April to November), and from Wednesday to Sunday (December to March), and if the Gobernación Marítima gives the authorization the of the tour.

*Consider that, during winter, you can see less fauna, because there is the migration and nesting period.
