The village Puerto Piramides has 450 permanent residents and is situated 100 Km/62 miles from Puerto Madryn. As well as guaranteeing outstanding gastronomy and accommodation, Puerto Piramides is the base for whale watching boat trips to see Southern Right whales (Eubalaena australis).
From June through December the whales arrive in the Gulf Nuevo to mate, give birth and raise their calves. It is an unforgettable experience to watch them from the boat in their natural habitat. Our specially trained guides on board will give you an insight of the facts and behaviour of these giants of the sea.
In the off-whale-season the best option for a closer look at the local marine wildlife are the boat tours that take you out to observe sea lions, cormorants, and occasionally dolphins.
There are two different types of whale watch tours: traditional tours that last over one hour and take several passengers, and the private tours on smaller boats offering the possibility and the time to visit different locations.
