Today you’ll have an early pick up for a 10-hour small-group excursion to Peninsula Valdes, a coastal and marine nature reserve declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999. This area is a unique paradise for seabirds with over 180 species present, while the coastline is home to a wide range of marine mammals, including sea lions, elephant seals and fur seals. Between June and December Southern Right whales swim into the quiet waters of this gulf, so that the females can give birth. You’ll be accompanied by specialized guides throughout the day as you explore the coastline of the peninsula which serves as a unique habitat and breeding-ground for the region’s very diverse fauna. Your whale-watching adventure, also part of the Peninsula Valdes Excursion, takes place in Puerto Pirámides, 100 kms from Puerto Madryn. Your captain and specialized bilingual crew will show and describe the coastal and marine ecosystem, as you travel through the area. They’ll be explaining the natural and biological life cycle of the whales, including birth and the care of the whale-calf. Transfer back to Puerto Madryn for a free evening.
