Elephant Seal Safari in Punta Delgada

Belching and bellowing, an elephant seal stretches its head to greet you. It’s a giant, some 3000 kgs of blubber and bravado. 

Huge colonies of them occupy Caleta Valdes, near Punta Delgada. So along with the giant males you can encounter seal pups – be warned, even the seal pups weigh more than you!

From August they arrive, the colonies swelling with newborns in September and October. Get too close and they will bite. But when faced with such incredible wildlife, you’ll be keen to just watch and admire.
