Silversea Expedition Cruises To WEST POINT ISLAND

Black-browed Albatross

Located slightly northwest of West Falkland, West Point Island is used for sheep farming and nature observations. Peale’s dolphins and the distinctive black and white markings of the Commerson’s dolphin can usually be seen in the waters around West Point Island. Rolling moorland and steep cliffs make for great photographic opportunities, but the main attraction is the Devil’s Nose, a cliffside colony of Black-browed Albatrosses nesting side-by-side with feisty Rockhopper Penguins. Magellanic Penguins and Magellanic Cormorants can also be found on the island.

Excursions in WEST POINT ISLAND

West Point New Island, Falkland Islands

Located slightly northwest of West Falkland, West Point Island is used for sheep farming and is a nature reserve. Peale's dolphins and the distinctive black and white markings of the Commerson's dolphin can usually be seen in the waters around West Point Island. Rolling moorland and steep cliffs make for great photographic opportunities, but the main attraction is the Devil's Nose, a cliffside colony of Black-browed Albatrosses nesting side-by-side with feisty Rockhopper Penguins. Magellanic Penguins and Magellanic Cormorants can also be found on the island.


Look for dolphins while approaching the settlement of West Point Island, where just one family lives. Hike to a Black-browed Albatross colony next to Rockhopper Penguins and Imperial Cormorants. Visit the home of the owners and enjoy tea and home-baked cakes and cookies as you hear stories of what it is like to live on this small island.


Return to the ship.



Please note: Landing at this island depending on weather and tide conditions. There is walking on uneven, natural terrain involved in this tour, making it less suitable for guests with walking difficulties and unsuitable for wheelchairs. Comfortable clothing with a warm layer, walking shoes, sunhat and sun protection are recommended. Wildlife sightings not guaranteed.
