This was one of the most amazing things I've seen in my life. We arrived in Peninsula Valdes and the boat was already waiting for us. We sailed with two excellent guides who explained us everything we needed to know about the southern right whales and their habits.

The southern right whale ( Eubalaena australis ), can be seen in Peninsula Valdes every year from june to december when they come to give birth and mate. This is a lonely animal, so most of the times they are seen either alone, with their calf or with another adult whale when mating.

We were lucky to see a whale with her calf, and a couple mating, although it was late for mating, so we were really lucky!

Address: Peninsula Valdes, Chubut
