In fact, the calendar of the southern marine fauna of the continent is the main and motivating axis of the traveler. Without a doubt, this city of Patagonia Argentina is the pole of tourist attraction where the southern right whale summons.
Numerous times as an inhabitant of these latitudes, I have wondered what motivates hundreds of thousands of people to travel by air or land, so many kilometers from July to December every year and visit the city of Puerto Madryn or Port Pyramids. The answer has to do with what I mentioned before: the agenda of the southern right whale, which comes to the coasts for breeding, breeding and breeding purposes of whales, then to go further south of the territory, is as the English say “the MUST.”
To contemplate them in their habitat, swimming, surfacing, playing with their young and entering again in such a friendly way, compensates and much the transfer. This wonderful spectacle can be realized from the different descents of Playa el Doradillo (just 14 kilometers from Madryn), from a boat in Puerto Pirámides and frequently a little more inland from the same pier of the city. Better if it is high tide. It is to observe them that the question arises of knowing who the sighting exerts us or them. His curious approach could be translated more into a human sight. Crazy not? It is there that we are without words, seeing them at such a short distance. Many adjectives would be needed for the description of this scene.
