Southern Sea Lions

 

Photo by Tito Bottazzi

Península Valdés, a Nature Reserve and World Heritage Site, affords visitors, young and old, with a unique opportunity to observe marine mammals, seabirds and steppe fauna. Watch Magellanic penguins, southern elephant seals and sea lions. Spot southern right whales and orcas. View dolphins, dusky, long-finned pilot, Commerson and Peale. Spy on sea life both on and offshore. Travel across the peninsula and catch a glimpse of steppe fauna - tinamous, armadillos, cuis, tucu-tucus, gatos del pajonal, southern gray fox, maras, and guanacos. Visit the Visitor Center at Isla de los Pajeros and enjoy birding through a telescope. Begin your journey at the Interpretation Center, located at the park entrance, and learn more about the region's wildlife. And should the kids tire of animals and birds, kayak, hike, scuba dive, mountain bike or sandboard. A variety of fun family tours and excursions depart daily from Puerto Pirámides.
