Located in the middle of the Golfo Nuevo bay, the Punta Loma Reserve is home to a major colony of sea lions. On this fantastic tour, you can see these large animals up close!
Punta Loma Sea Lion Tour
We will pick you up from your hotel in Puerto Madryn and then head directly to the sea lion reserve of Punta Loma, located only 30 minutes outside the city.
Once we arrive at this protected wildlife park, we will go the observation point from where you will witness the amazing sight of the sea lions that inhabit this stretch of coastline of the Chubut province.
On this tour, you will learn how these wonderful animals feed, what their habits are, and why the colony in this area is so large. As you watch them, you will also hear fascinating facts about the local wildlife, which is protected in order to avoid their extinction. You will also see a colony of Cormorant birds.
When we have finished watching the sea lions, we will take a guided tour of Puerto Madryn before finally returning to the hotels in the city.
The sea lions of Punta Loma are unpredictable creatures. Natural factors such as the wind, sea currents, and weather, will affect the number of species that you spot on the day of your tour.
