Magellanic Penguin's home - private guided shore excursion tour


I invite you to spend a day surrounded by the cutest little guys on tuxedo, the Magellanic Penguins, every year they arrive in mid September when their reproductive cycle starts, the first ones to arrive will be the males followed by the females a few weeks later, but I wont tell you more about it, because you'll have to discover it by yourself how the story goes, so meet me at Puerto Madryn pier and let's enjoy a beautiful day with penguins.

To get to Punta Tombo we must drive approx. 2 1/2 hrs, once at the rookery you'll have to do an easy walk of about 2 hours among penguins and sometimes you also get to see some of the tipical patagonian wildlife.

Note: If your are a bigger group don't hesitate to ask me as I can arrange for bigger transportation

Itinerary

From the pier we drive straight to Punta Tombo, the driving to get there is a 2 1/2 hours, once in Tombo will be walking for approx. 2 hours and then will drive back to the pier also for 2 1/2 hours.

A Recent Review of this tour

My family enjoyed a wonderful tour of the penguins at Punta Tombo with Carina during our recent stop at Puerto Madryn during our cruise. She was prompt, friendly and informative. The 2.5 hour drive there and back was relatively easy as she discussed the history and culture of the region and pointed out many sites of interest along the way. Carina also took extra special care with both my elderly mother who was in a wheelchair, and my very active 10 year old son. We highly recommend this special tour.
