Orcas

It is the biggest dolphin in the world, and it can be watched all year long unexpectedly

It is the biggest dolphin in the world, and it can be watched all year long unexpectedly. It is likely to see them in February, March and April, time when sea lions and elephant seals are born, since some families of orcas in Península Valdés developed a intentionally grounding strategy to catch unaware preys (sea lions and elephant seals pups) on the shore.

Although they may be seen suddenly in any place in Patagonia, it is more likely to watch them in Punta Norte and Caleta Valdés.
