50' "YELLOW SUBMARINE" Whale Watching Trips in Chubut, Argentina
Whale watching TRADITIONAL WHALE WATCHING The regular trip consists of an excursion of one hour and a half on the Golfo Nuevo waters to watch southern right whales. The departure is from Puerto Pirámides and the trip sails up to an approximate range of 10 miles, depending on the position of the animals. Apart from enjoying beautiful coastal landscapes, you might be able to watch sea lions in their rookeries together with Patagonian typical seabirds. More than 20 years of experience in whales watching navigation on the Golfo Nuevo have proved that RIBs (rigid inflatable boats) are ideal vessels for their operational flexibility, and for being chosen by passengers for their viewpoint and proximity to the animals. Southern Spirit S.A. have designed two twin purpose-built RIBs (Islas Malvinas Argentinas and Zeus). These boats built with top safety equipment and latest boating technology can accommodate up to 60 passengers.
