Whale watching in Argentina

southern right whale

Enjoy the sight of southern right whales arriving in the waters off the Valdes Peninsula.

If your timing is right, a visit to the Valdes Peninsula could bring with it the unforgettable sight of southern right whales arriving from Antarctica to breed in warmer climes.

Between June and December, the 15m giants of the southern seas birth and nurse their calves in these waters. The sight of an enormous tail slapping the surface of the ocean, or a barnacle-encrusted head rising above it, inspires a level of awe and wonder few other wildlife sightings can match.
