Full description
Set out in the early morning for Puerto Pirámide where you will take a boat to go whale watching. It is advisable to board very early in the morning for favorable weather. After boarding you will set our course for south of the peninsula, going through Salinas Grande y Chica. The tour arrives at Punta Delgada around midday. After lunch at the El Faro resort you can go down to the cliffs and walk near the sea elephants. Afterwards the tour proceeds to Punta Cantor to see the external coast of the peninsula and get to Caleta Valdés (also known as Valdés Inlet). Here you will view geological formations before heading back to the Ameghino Isthmus. There is a good chance of seeing some of the wild land animals such as guanacos, rheas, foxes, maras (Patagonian hare), armadillos or skunks. At sunset, we will arrive at Puerto Madryn. * Whale watching season is June - December. The rest of the year, the cruise goes seal watching. Please note that whale watching is subject to weather conditions.

It was wonderful! Incredible to see so many whales so close! But the entire day was awesome! We saw so many animals from Patagonia Atlántica, Guanaco, Mara, Pingüino, Sea elephants and more! Plus we had amazing explanations about nature and animals od the peninsula thanks to the guide! Really worth the price I recommend 100%!

It was amazing!!!!!! The best day tour I ever had. The guide Lucas was wonderful, very professional, knowledgeable, kind, helpful. He gave as very interesting information about the animals and generally about the region. The tour was in private car for 3 people only. The sailing was amazing!!! The pictures was unbelievably beautiful.

Well worth the price

The weather and the guide play a role in such trips. The guide was very good and also spoke perfect English. Brilliant sun kept the animals on land moving. We saw llamas, ostriches, domestic hares, birds etc. Sea elephants, sea lions we got quite close. The food at Guys was good. The highlight of watching the election was perfect. A little wind and no waves gave perfect photos. The number of whales was very many. The boat was between 20 and 100 meters from the whale for a long time. We switched to different individuals during the tour. It was mother with calf that we saw. Sydkapare. Valdes is a large peninsula, so it takes a long time to get between the different animals' places. I feel that laws and regulations to protect the animals in the reserve are very good and that they are followed.
