Southern Right Whales

The southern right whale season in Patagonia

We have been watching Southern right whales in Patagonia since 1993. However, every year provides us with a new experience. Hardly any other whale species approaches the boats as closely as the right whale. Regularly we can observe mothers guiding their calves towards the boats which is very emotional for every whale watcher.

This unique trip takes you on a journey to observe whales, dolphins, penguins and other wildlife around the coast of Patagonia. This is also where you can find some of the most breath taking landscapes in the world. The definite highlight of the expedition is the close contact to the Southern Right Whales which are known to be very interactive and curious about people and boats which is why close encounters can be guaranteed

Our team is fortunate to know the locations of many animal colonies which are off the beaten tourist track and which are usually only accessible to film and TV crews. Our groups are able to get into close proximity of the animals where they can enjoy the nature in total privacy. Of course all tours are conducted under the guidance of experts who take great care to not disturb the animals as to us, conservation and sustainability are paramount.

This is truly a memorable tour – ideal for hobby photographers, video makers and nature observers. Family tours can be booked as a customized tour during holidays in autumn. Particularly children will have a unique experience and an unforgettable adventure. In total we offer two different southern right whale expeditions:
– Southern Right Whale Nature Safari
– Southern Right Whale Photo Safari
