El Doradillo

A Close Encounter with Whales

El Doradillo Beach, located just 20 km from Puerto Madryn, is a privileged spot for whale watching. Every year, mother whales and their calves choose these calm waters to rest and nurture their young. Thanks to the slope of the coast, the whales can stay within 20 to 30 meters of distance, allowing unparalleled sighting without the need to sail.

During the excursion, we will stay on the beach for approximately an hour and a half to two hours, taking advantage of the high tide to possibly see the whales closer. This tour is conducted from June/July to October/November, subject to the presence of the whales.

Additional Information:

According to National Geographic, Argentine Patagonia is one of the best places in the world for whale watching. In particular, the area of the Valdés Peninsula, which includes El Doradillo Beach, offers the advantage of short navigations that take the traveler to the center of the gulf to literally join the community of whales.

Comfortable clothing and footwear for walking on the beach. Sun protection: hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen. Water and snacks. A camera to capture the incredible moments with the whales.
The best time to visit El Doradillo Beach is from June/July to October/November when the whales are present. However, it is always advisable to check the presence of the whales before planning your visit.
It’s important to remember that whales are wild animals and must be respected. Maintain a safe distance and avoid making excessive noise that might disturb them. Remember, we are in their home, and we must behave like respectful guests.
