Whale Season in Peninsula Valdes, Argentina

Southern Right Whales cresting just off the coast!

The whales are back! The Southern Right Whales just arrived to the coast of the Peninsula Valdes in Argentina, as they do every year to give birth and mate. Now through November is the ideal time to visit.

Campsites are normally in places were you can observe the Right whales from the shore

We can arrange for active and easy wildlife tours on the Peninsula, but what we love the most are the amazing kayak trips! Imagine camping out on a pristine beach with whales just off shore… on a kayak expedition you and your group of no more than 8 people will have this area practically to yourselves! You’ll also kayak in close proximity to whales and sea lions.
