The Parque Pinguino Rey by the Bahia Inútil can be your most coveted destination to observe the majestic King Penguins in their natural habitats. This penguin colony being the only found in South America attracts numerous professional photographers, casual tourists, and conservationists to learn about the behaviour and reproduction status of the penguins, their habitat, and surroundings, the flora, and fauna found in the area and to document them thoroughly. The tentative time to explore the Parque Pinguino Rey is around two hours during which you will get to see the birds from the roped-off observation deck while learning about the research project and conservation strategy for sustainable tourism.

Parque Pinguino Rey Reviews & Ratings
Lovely Penguins. Just a few ones. The trip is exhausting
Just amazing to see these King Penguins. They were so comical. The hide was purpose built and with telescopes it was perfect for viewing them up close....put your phone camera up to the eye piece for a close up shot.
It took a while to get there but it was cool to see the penguins there. Only problem is that you can only see them through binoculars.
Can't get very close due to being a less common and protected species, but larger than the other more common penguins. With a good telephoto lens you can get some good pictures though. Nothing like national geographic videos, it is smaller groups of maybe up to 50 or so when I went end of December. Has a 12000 Chilean peso entrance fee.
A small park but unique in South America having the only king pengiun colony on the continent. The staff gave a nice talk explaining the habits and characyeristics of the birds before we went to observe them. As a biologist it was fascinating. There is lots of other wildlife and information available too. Don't forget the 12000 CLP entrance fee (younger kids free). They do take a credit / debit card.
