Punta Tombo Penguin Rookery
Take a walk among Magellan penguin nests and see them in their natural habitat on this day trip to Punta Tombo. This is an amazing opportunity to experience the largest penguin nesting ground in continental South America.
The penguin nesting grounds of Punta Tombo thrive from September to March, hosting nearly two million Magellan penguins. Beginning in November, visitors can actually see baby penguins first leaving their nests.
While in Punta Tombo, you can explore the nesting grounds and get up close to these amazing creatures. Punta Tombo is 100 miles south of Puerto Madryn, but the experience is worth the five hours of round trip travel. You won't want to miss this once-in-a-lifetime penguin experience.

We beat the crowd out to the penguin reserve and actually had a fair amount of time there before the large tour buses from the ship arrived.
It was a great insight into the ways of the penguins in Puerto Madryn, Arg.
