Description

Cruise along Argentina's coast to look for breaching orcas, snap photos of waddling penguins, and get up-close looks at traditional ranching practices. Along the way, get the chance to savor succulent pieces of spit-roasted lamb and learn about the region's rich ecological environments.

Meet up with your guide outside your Puerto Madryn before hopping in a comfortable shuttle and riding to Puerto Piramides, where you can transfer to a spacious vessel for an open water whale-watching cruise. Spend some time scanning the horizon for the black fins of feeding orcas and then return to shore.

Continue down the coast, stopping off at Estancio San Lorenzo to check out life on a sheep ranch, try roasted pieces of tasty lamb, and visit the nearby penguin reserve to photo opportunities of adorable Magellanic penguins. At Punta Norte and Punta Cantor, get the chance to see the big snouts of lumbering elephant seals and then cruise back toward Puerto Madryn. Before you return, stop off at an interpretation center filled with immersive exhibits and animal artifacts—like a full southern right whale skeleton—that help bring your day's activities into focus.
