Peninsula Valdes Highlights

Your adventures awaits as soon as you leave the ship. On this small group day trip tour from Puerto Madryn with no more than 18 guests, you will have the opportunity to experience "Mankind's Natural Heritage," where whales, elephant seals, penguins and other amazing creatures all share the same habitat.

Take in the landscape of the region on the 35-mile drive from Puerto Madryn to your first stop at Peninsula Valdes. This amazing ecosystem brings together a variety of marine life, including orcas, elephant seals, fur seals, and Magellan penguins. After a visit to the interpretation center, you will depart once more, this time traveling 59 miles to Caleta Valdes, a 21-mile stretch of protected land. Once there, you will have a chance to encounter more area wildlife, including elephant seals, penguins, and occasionally orcas. Finally, enjoy more incredible views of the scenery on your ride back to the ship in time to depart.

Reviewer: William Zielinski
We were there in early February. There were some seal lions and elephant seals, along with the ubiquitous Magellanic penguins. The area is known for Orcas beaching themselves to catch seals. We did not see Orcas. The important thing to know is that the animals change with the season, so depending when you visit the peninsula, you may not see Orcas, seal lions, etc. Do you homework to maximize the chance of seeing the animals you want to see. That being said the excursion operator was very good. The guide spoke excellent English and was well versed in the flora and fauna of the Valdes Peninsula. During the hour or so trip to the peninsula, he informed us about everything one would want to know about the area. The reason we did not book the excursion thru Celebrity was the price difference. We saw the same things the Celebrity people saw and were not part of a 50 person excursion bus. Our bus held fourteen people. It was more personal.

The guide was very knowledgeable. We enjoyed the walking and the nature aspects of the tour. It could have been longer and at a faster pace but with a large group of various degrees of mobility, this would be almost impossible to achieve. Perhaps consideration could be given to an additional tour which caters for the fitter participants. The guide was certainly fit enough and kept trying to push people along to keep to the time line.
