Definitely a struggle to wake up so early but wow is it worth it. It’s a long day but worth every moment. We were in Chile for 2 weeks and this is one of our highlights of the entire trip. It’s truly a once in a lifetime experience to see so many whales and eating lunch on a boat with a massive glacier on one side of you and waterfalls on another. The guides were passionate and knowledgeable, the main guide is actually a marine biologist! You could tell how deeply he cared for these animals and preservation. We stood in rain, cold, wind all while sleep deprived and we would do it all over again. Truly incredible and unforgettable.

This is a very good tour. The crew is very nice, and knowledgeable about the marine life. It is worthwhile. We saw many cute penguins up close. The only improvement is that we waited for more than an hour at check in during early morning time. Since we have paid, all we got is to check our names. The check in process needs improvement.

A seamless experience with a very efficient company & crew. The commentator is very informative in English as well as Spanish, the coastline is uniquely beautiful and the wildlife is abundant. Whales, sea lions, penguins and birds all around. Bring a handful of your own special snacks, enjoy the trip!

Really good day out only spoilt a bit by the Tabano flies which were in abundance. The return boat journey is beautiful. Puella is only small place so maybe take the 4x 4 option which we didn't. There is a hotel & a bar which serve food.

Well- organized, beautiful boat trip! Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable crew staff! They know where to find animals, tried to get to them as close as possible and let us take great pictures. Thank you so much for the unforgettable trip!
