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.
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.
