Don’t miss this chance to see the striking black-and-white Commerson’s dolphin (Cephalorhynchus commersonii) in the wild with this Dolphin Watching Tour in Puerto Madryn. This playful marine animal can only be seen in two regions of the world making this a unique chance to see them.

The Dolphin Watching Tour will take you from Puerto Madryn to the city of Trelew where you’ll stop for an hour at the Palaeontology Museum (Museo Paleontológico Egidio Feruglio), an important centre for the study of dinosaur skeletons found in the steppes of Patagonia. You’ll see exhibits of dinosaur skeletons, thousand of fossil specimens, actual palaeontologists at work and the femur from the largest dinosaur ever discovered.

Next you’ll continue on to the port city of Rawson, the capital of Chubut province. This is where the Chubut River meets the ocean. The tour will take you to Playa Unión, a resort village that forms part of Bahía Engaño (Deception Bay). Here you’ll board a semi-rigid boat with your guide and begin the dolphin watching. The playful Commerson’s dolphins love to race along with boats, making a fun spectacle. Keep your camera ready though, these dolphins move quickly through the water! After the boat trip, a shuttle will take you back to Puerto Madryn.

Since these panda-coloured dolphins can only be spotted in the wild in a few places, don’t miss your chance to see them playing in the wake of the boat. Book this Dolphin Watching Tour in Puerto Madryn now for a fantastic wildlife spotting adventure in Patagonia.
