A luxury in Valdes Peninsula is undoubtedly the whale watching. Those tours are done daily from Puerto Piramides, the only port qualified to offer this tour throughout Argentina.
Whale Watching excursion moves each year thousands of tourists coming to our little town to see these huge marine mammals that come to breed in the calm waters of Golfo Nuevo.
The Valdes Peninsula is, by far, one of the best places in the world for the observation of whales, where the concentration of individuals per square kilometer is extremely high. During the 2013 whale season there were more than 2.000 individuals counted in the month of September, the month of highest concentration in what is an extensive whale watching season, from June to December. This species, The Southern Right Whale (Eubalaena Australis) has an annual increase of approximately 7%, meaning that we should expect some 70 whales more with each season.
