Whales come every year to the Nuevo Gulf, and offer you a unique spectacle in the world.
Where shall you find them?
Southern Right Whales Shore Watching
You are not the only one who comes to Puerto Madryn looking for some fun. From the main avenues of the city and its 3 kilometres of coastal waters you will be able to see whales playing near the beaches.
“El Doradillo” NPA (Natural Protected Area)
Whales congregate to breed and feed their calves just 15 kilometres far from the city. Along its 25 kilometres of shore between Punta Arco and Prismático Hill, you may find these magnificent cetaceans some steps away from you.
