What to Expect What to Expect

When your cruise ship docks at the Puerto Madryn port, you’ll be picked up by your professional guide and taken on a private shore excursion to Punta Tombo, located 3.5 hours south.

This peninsula, a fauna and penguin preservation area created in 1979, is home to the most important Magellan penguins colony in Patagonia. Almost one million of these loveable creatures arrive from the Atlantic at this place every year in order to breed, incubate their eggs, and prepare their offspring for migration. Though the first penguins arrive in September and stay until April, the best season to see them is after November, once the babies are born, so this is the perfect opportunity for you to experience the penguins!

Your guide will lead you down the 2-mile (3-km) stretch of beach so you can get up close to these amazing animals. Walk among the penguins, witness their habits, and see how they feed their babies, fight for the defense of their territories, and build their nests. You’ll watch these tender animals more closely than you ever imagined you could!

After this unique wildlife experience, you’ll be taken back to the Puerto Madryn port.
