Experience Humboldt Penguin Reserve & Relax on a Quiet Beach

Explore Chile’s stunning coastal islands and spot penguins and bottle-nosed dolphins at the Humboldt National Park and Penguin Reserve. Dine on fresh local seafood, and relax on the Pacific shore!

Just a quick drive hour and a half from Santiago, this full day tour includes transportation, a boat ride to Cachagua Island, entry to the park, and an afternoon relaxing on a secluded beach, where you’ll be able to take a dive in the bay and meander along the stone-lined Pacific coast.


  • Take a boat trip to Cachagua Island
  • Observe Penguins at Humboldt National Park
  • Experience local gastronomy & fresh seafood at a restaurant
  • Relax for an afternoon on a peaceful beach facing the bay


This private day tour will depart from Santiago in the early morning, and take you northwest towards the town of Zapallar.

On the drive you’ll get a look at the area’s diverse landscapes, including vinyards in Aconcagua, avocado plantations in Quillota and the La Campana Mountain that rises above Ocoa.  

Upon arrival to the coast, a fishing boat will be waiting to take you to the beaches along Zapallar and Cachagua. As the boat approaches the Cachagua Island, keep a look out for penguins and the island’s other residents.

In the afternoon, you’ll stop for a fresh seafood lunch at a local restaurant before heading to a hidden bay along the coastline.

Nestled between sloping hills and scattered beach houses, you’ll enjoy a secluded afternoon swimming and relaxing on the sandy shore. Watch the sun set over the Pacific before heading back home to Santiago in the evening.
