Puerto Madryn is located towards the Atlantic Ocean, a city in Chubut known worldwide for the sighting of the Franca Austral whale, a species declared Natural Monument of our country.
Puerto Madryn is also the gateway to the Valdés Peninsula. Declared Natural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO, the peninsula concentrates the largest amount of marine fauna on the continent. In addition to the presence of the southern right whale, this place is an ideal place to spot the Magellan Penguin, especially from September to April in Punta Tombo.
Baptized as the National Capital of Diving and Underwater Activities, Puerto Madryn is also a dream place for a first underwater experience in Patagonia, being able to enjoy the wonders that the seabed reveals to us, sighting salmon, halibuts, sea urchins, algae, caves and reefs.
