Mata Rangi - Tour Operator Arica - Chile

Mata Rangi is the one company offering tours of Arica’s bay with a focus on birdwatching. The basic one-hour tour visits bird colonies of Inca tern, boobies, cormorant, gulls, pelican, elegant tern and black-crowned night herons, as well as sea lions. The four-hour Pingüinos en el Desierto excursion (daily at 10 a.m.) goes down the coast to a Humboldt penguin colony, observing other birds and sea lions along the way. The outing ends with a picnic on the beach north of Corazones. The guide speaks Spanish; the captain speaks Spanish and English. Mata Rangi also has a tasty restaurant that specializes in seafood. Bay tour: $24 for one person, $10 per additional person. Penguin tour: 2 persons $80 to six persons $160.
