The day begins at the Tres Puentes ferry terminal where we board the ship for the two-hour trip to Porvenir, on the main island of Tierra del Fuego. We will be crossing the legendary Straits of Magellan, a channel 583 km long thet connects the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. In Porvenir we will visit the Fernando Cordero Rusque Museum with its exhibits covering the local fauna, the first movie theater on the island, the 19th-century gold rush, and the material about the early indigenous inhabitants, the Selknams.

After lunch we will continue along the edge of Useless Bay, then enter a section of seemingly endless open pampa. Along the way we may see several species of birds as well as guanacos, a South American camelid that is related to the llamas, vicuñas, and alpacas. After traveling 114 km we reach the King Penguin Park. The king penguins, which are second largest after the emperor penguins, have a permanent colony here. Of all penguins these are considered the best divers and they can reach considerble depth, where schools of squids are found. During the summer season it may be possible to see the penguin chicks.

We'll then leave the park and head for La Primera Angostura ("the First Narrows") where it is only 5 km across the Straits of Magellan. Here we take a ferry for about 20 minutes to retur to the continent and then continue another 200 km to return to Punta Arenas.
