  • Installed in the entrance to the Peninsula Valdés prepares visitors to understand what are the characteristics of the area. Took us only a few minutes going through its rooms which, in a didactic manner, recount the ecological characteristics of the region and the species of sea fauna found in the Patagonian coast.

  • Nice bilingual overview of what you can expect to see in Valdez national park and when which animals are there. There is no entrance fee besides the one to enter the park and the toilets are really clean.
  • Very helpful staff, would recomend to stop before touring the peninsula. They told us exactly where and at what time we coud see the penguins, see elephants, orcas, etc. Free maps too.
  • Nice place to go when you're visiting Peninsula Valdez, guides are really kind, and they will give you a lot of information about wales and other water mammals.
  • Great information, kind and passionate guides.
  • Ok!
