Playa El Doradillo in Puerto Madryn


The area known as El Doradillo is the place chosen by many Southern right whale cows and their calves. Due to the calm waters and the unusual depth of the steep beach, the whales can approach the coast considerably, thus allowing whale watching from land. There is a good possibility that the whales will be as close as 15 to 20 metres/50 to 70 feet off the beach. The excursion is scheduled around the high tide, because of the higher probability to see the whales close by.
