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
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 21/2 hours.

Our party of four had a wonderful day exploring PuntaTombo with Carina. The two hour journey was comfortable in her modern SUV. What a pleasure, in comparasion to the 50 passenger "cruise ship excursions" - and less expensive too! After arriving in Punta Tombo, we first spent time in the visitors center, where Carina explained in detail the various and unusual creatures to be found in Patagonia. We actually saw a few during our drive. The Penguins were, of course, delightful! A great experience!
