Landmark Tourist Spot
Visit Puerto Piramides for a range of ecotourism experiences in a protected coastal area, designated as a World Heritage Site for its ecological diversity. One of the premier whale-watching environments in the world, the bay was visited in 1972 by legendary oceanographer Jacques Cousteau, who studied the breeding patterns of right whales in the area. The whales, along with sea lions and Magellan penguins, can be spotted on a range of tours around the bay, on land and off. A small town of 500 people provides services for visitors to the reserve, with boat tours, snorkeling trips, and hikes around the coastal dunes starting and ending in the settlement.

  • We visited this place in August. Great month for whale watching. Compared to other places I've been to spot whales (Alaska and Canada) this was the place where I've seen the most is a lot closer than I thought. I borrowed this part of a tour booked from Italy to make sea excursion and it was really beautiful. Tour used a "yellow submarine" to see the whales underwater.

  • Beautiful place, pure nature, to walk along the beach, enjoy the scenery and hear the sound of whales at night and appreciate the falls during the day.
