Sea life Argentina

Discover Sea life

In this rather inhospitable area, you can see elephant seals, Magellanic penguins, southern right whales (from mid-September to December) and eared seals. The natural reserve of the Valdès peninsula, located on the Atlantic coast, welcomes more than 400 of these sea mammals coming here to breed between mid-July and mid-December. The hot currents from Brazil explain why the location is so comfortable and attracts such a variety of species.
