Cruising to Puerto Madryn

Located on the Atlantic coast of Patagonia, Puerto Madryn is the gateway to one of the most spectacular regions on earth, with the rugged landscape at the southern tip of the South American continent being the stuff of legend, while the abundant marine life is also a huge draw for tourists from around the world. Indeed, the deep waters off the shore of this part of Argentina provide one of the best whale and dolphin watching spots on the planet, with the southern right whale being very common here from September to December.

The nearby Peninsula Valdes, meanwhile, is one of the continent's most popular destinations for wildlife enthusiasts, and is known for its enormous colonies of sea lions and seals, whilst there are also thousands of friendly penguins waiting to greet visitors at Punta Tumbo.

For those who would rather get a little more active, activities like kite surfing, wind surfing and a range of other water sports are available here during the summer, although it's worth bearing in mind that the sea can be pretty chilly in these parts
