Whale Watching Cruise on the Valdes Peninsula

The ocean appears calm. There’s nothing but blue and your slowly bobbing boat. Then commotion. From the depths a whale emerges. Gliding effortlessly it looms shoots skyward, before 25,000 kgs crashes back down onto the water surface.

Southern right whales love this peninsula. They come here to raise their young, and their inquisitive nature makes them easy to see up close. These giants are so big the males have testicals weighing 500 kgs. 

On this half-day whale watching cruise you’ll explore the ocean in a small boat. It’s more manoeuvrable than larger boats and means you can get closer, as well as respond to sightings faster. July to December are the best months to see the whales.
