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. 250 miles round trip, once at the rockery you'll have to do an easy walk of about 2 hours.
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.
