Breaking the Record for Southern Right Whales!

During the season, we can almost always see two or three whale families swimming in the bay right from the balconies at Océano Patagonia. But a few days ago, there were some 20 whales, breathing and spraying directly in front of our little boutique eco-hotel on the beach in Peninsula Valdés. Such an incredible experience that folks in the village literally left what they were doing to walk down to the shore and watch the excitement.

It is an incredible record year for the Southern Right Whale here in Golfo Nuevo, Patagonia, Argentina. More than 1,600 whales and their babies at last count, which is the greatest number ever registered since the census started in 1999. Of all the whales counted, there are 710 babies.

If you have ever dreamed of meeting this amazing creature, face-to-face, this is the year. These beautiful whales are with us until the first days of December. Book now and don’t miss this amazing experience! info@oceanopatagonia.com
