Encounter Peninsula Valdes’ Wildlife

Peninsula Valdes’ mighty marine wildlife

The 250 mile long stretch of the Peninsula Valdes coastline is one of the top wildlife destinations in Argentina. From lethargic elephant seals and rare Southern Right Whales to adorable penguins and acrobatic dolphins; Peninsula Valdes is one of the most important areas in South America for marine mammals and birds. Due to the gulfs, shallow bays and lagoons, Peninsula Valdes is a safe haven for the endangered Southern Right Whale. Whale watching trips in Peninsula Valdes is therefore one of the most popular activities in Argentina’s region of Patagonia. However, you don’t necessarily need to take a boat out to go whale watching in Peninsula Valdes as from September to April, Orcas (Killer Whales) often raid the shoreline during high tide looking to feast on the newborn sea lion pups. Read more about South America’s best wildlife destinations…
