About this activity
The first stop is in the Rawson's Port at Playa Unión where you'll embark to observe the Overas Toninas (optional). The Overa Toninas are recognized for their similarity to the dolphins. They are no longer than a meter and a half. Puerto Rawson is one of the few places in the world where they can be observed in their natural habitat. These daring species usually escort ships, playing and showing their skills to the visitors who have the possibility to watch the spectacle. The navigation lasts approximately an hour and a half.

Once you've returned to land, you'll have free time to buy your lunch (optional, at your own expense) or you are able to take your own box lunch. As there are 150km between Playa Union and Punta Tombo, lunch will be on board.

Later, you'll go to Punta Tombo, a geographical accident that Magellan's penguin uses as habitat (entrance fee not included). At this stop, you'll have the chance to watch penguins in their own habitat as they scurry and play on the rocks. There, you'll have time to observe how the penguins coexist on the coast with other species, such as Gulls, Skúas, Giant Petrels, Cormorants, Ostreros and Pato Vapor and, given the extension of the area, typical species of the steppe like Guanacos, Choiques, Maras and Grey Foxes. You'll spend approximately an hour and a half at this stop.

As the sun is setting behind the water you'll return to Puerto Madryn.
