OPTION Nº 1
Punta Tombo (7 hours)
We will visit the most important Magellan penguins colony in Patagonia. Almost one million of these lovely creatures arrive from the Atlantic to this place every year in order to breed, incubate their eggs, and prepare their offspring for migration.
When your cruise ship docks at the Puerto Madryn port, you will be picked up by your professional guide and taken to Punta Tombo, located 2.5 hours south.
This peninsula, a fauna and penguin preservation area created in 1979, is home to the most important Magellan penguins colony in Patagonia.
The first penguins arrive in September and stay until April, the best season to see them is after November, once the babies were born, so this is the perfect opportunity for you to experience the penguins!
Your guide will lead you down the 2-mile (3-km) stretch of beach so you can get up close to these amazing animals. Walk among the penguins, witness their habits, and see how they feed their babies, fight for the defense of their territories, and build their nests. You will watch these tender animals more closely than you ever imagined you could!
After this unique wildlife experience, you will be taken back to the Puerto Madryn port
