Declared as a World Natural Heritage by UNESCO in 1999, it is home to an extensive variety of wildlife. In addition to penguins, sea lions, elephants seals and incredible marine birdlife, Its biggest attraction is the Southern Right Whale that migrates here yearly for breeding and calving.
This 7-day itinerary features days on pristine waters and nights under the Southern Cross. As we paddle, huge mammals rise out in the Gulf of San Jose and playful seals bark and slide into the water to join us. Whether focusing our day on bird watching, visiting archeological sites along the coast, enjoying spectacular sunsets or listening to the sounds of the Southern Right Whale, kayaking at Península Valdés is all about fun and adventure.
On all our kayak trips, the true spirit of adventure and discovery is mixed with learning and personal challenge, while emphasizing safety and offering instruction. We begin each kayak trip with an orientation to our sea kayaks followed by on-the-water safety considerations and basic paddling skill instruction. Our goal is to ensure you feel comfortable and safe by the time you get on the water. You’ll soon handle your kayak with confidence, and you can expect to not only refine your techniques over the course of the trip, but also to be introduced to new skills and ideas throughout. Our trips are not considered to be strenuous or physically demanding, and we do not require a high level of fitness; however good general physical condition is necessary.
