If you are staying at El Pedral between the months of June and December, then reserve one of your days for a full-day whale watching excursion that few places in the world can offer.
The journey starts with a 170 km drive around the Golfo Nuevo to the port town of Puerto Pirámides. From there, you will go aboard a boat or El Pedral’s Yellow Submarine for a guided sea voyage in search of the southern right whales. The expedition takes you within a 16 km radius from the port, depending on the location of the mammals.
Aboard the submarine, you can observe the whales above and below the surface of the water. A guide will accompany you throughout the voyage explaining the behavior of these majestic mammals and answering any questions. The sea adventure lasts 1½ hours.
Other species you may see on this excursion include South American sea lions, typical birds of the Patagonian coast, and, depending on the time of year, dusky dolphins.
