Whale Watching in Patagonia

  • English English
  • 12 hours

Admire majestic humpback whales in beautiful Patagonia. We will observe these enormous cetacean creatures in their natural habitat and discover the stunning landscapes of the Strait of Magellan.

Whale Watching in Patagonia

Once we have all met up, we will head to the port in Punta Arenas where we board the vessel which will take us far into the Strait of Magellan.

During the first part of the boat trip, we will enjoy the glorious sunrise over Tierra de Fuego and the Fuerte Bulnes fort. This stronghold was the first Chilean construction on the Strait of Magellan. The warm glow from the rising sun on the horizon will enchant you!

We pass in front of Cabo Froward, the southerly most point on the mainland of America. From the boat, you will observe elephant seals and sea lions resting on the rocks. Peale’s dolphins frequently approach the vessels to play and nose around. You will have the opportunity to admire humpback whales, the enormous cetacean creatures which are native to these protected waters.

Around midday, we will recharge our batteries with a tasty lunch on board the boat, before slowly making our way back to Punta Arenas, admiring the spectacular landscapes of this remote corner of Patagonia along the way.

The tour ends at the port in Punta Arenas.
