On this fantastic trip to the El Doradillo beach, you will witness the true kings of this magical stretch of coastline - the Southern right whale.
Whale Watching in El Doradillo
Once we have collected you from your hotel in Puerto Madryn we will head directly to the El Doradillo Nature Reserve, only a thirty-minute drive outside the city.
From the coast of El Doradillo, we will observe the magnificent Southern right whale swimming through the ocean waters. This area of the southern Atlantic offers the unique opportunity to see these magnificent marine mammals from as close as just 25 meters. At this distance, you will even hear these sea giants breathing!
El Doradillo is located in the Golfo Nuevo bay, the ocean gateway to Valdes Peninsula, an area of rich ecological diversity with a wide variety of wildlife, particularly whales and dolphins. While admiring the magnitude of these colossal creatures we will also learn some fascinating facts about how they feed and reproduce.
We conclude the trip with a brief but entertaining guided tour of Puerto Madryn before returning to your hotel in the city center.
Southern right whales are unpredictable creatures. The number of whales you will see on your tour will depend on the sea currents, weather conditions, wind direction, and other uncontrollable factors on that particular day.
To ensure that you see the maximum possible number of whales as possible, the departure time will depend on the times of the sea tide on the particular day of your tour. After making the reservation, the tour provider will contact you to confirm the exact pickup time from your hotel in Puerto Madryn.
