The southern right whale puts up a unique magical show at the Valdés Peninsula.
The City of Puerto Madryn is one of the most important and popular tourist destinations on the Patagonian coast. Of course the main show in the area is put up by the famous whales that jump over the water surface with their upright tails to announce their longed-for presence.
We embarked upon an adventure second to none: our aim was to watch the southern right whale. We reached Puerto Madryn at night and checked in at Ty Coed apartment hotel. This is a very comfortable choice where we recovered our energy in order to enjoy the tour to the fullest.
After a hearty breakfast with toast, homemade croissants, milk, sauco jam, and aromatic black coffee, Tito Botazzi’s team picked us up on a shuttle.

Level of Difficulty: Low.
Duration: 1 hour and a half.
Timetables: The boats doing this excursion leave from Puerto Pirámides at 10am, 12pm, 2pm and 4pm, approximately.
Recommendations: Wear warm clothes, as the area is generally quite windy. It is better to take off some clothes if it is hot, than to feel cold because we are not wearing a jacket or a sweatshirt. On the other hand, we recommend that you wear a waterproof cape, as when the craft gains speed on the high seas, the excursionists may be splayed, especially the ones sitting on the bow.
