The Valdes Peninsula is a geographic coastal accident resting along the Argentine sea (South-East Atlantic), in the province of Chubut, and comprises one of the nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Argentina. Represented by a piece of land jutting out into the sea, the Valdes Peninsula has an almost rectangular form, connected continentally by the narrow Carlos Ameghino Isthmus.
The Valdes Peninsula receives the largest reproductive population of Southern Right Whales in the world, with more than 2000 individuals identified and cataloged by the Whale Conservation Institute and Ocean Alliance. The region is home to six nature reserves and is considered to be one of the primary and most important destinations for Whale Watching on our planet.
Puerto Piramide is a tiny town with a population of just 800, and it is here where our Whale Watching excursion begins.
