By Cruise on the High Seas, to Puerto Madryn!
The crystalline and deep waters of the New Gulf, together with the sun that slowly rises on the horizon, accompany the arrival of each cruise to the city of Puerto Madryn annually.
Arrival is usually early, to be able to enjoy all the experiences that this landfall offers and thus discover the wildlife paradise and marvel at its vast Patagonian landscapes.
As soon as you get off the cruise, you can book an excursion at the foot of the pier with one of the authorized travel agencies, to visit any of the nearby Protected Natural Areas. Depending on the time of year and the time you have before leaving for another port, you will be able to choose various options such as whale watching, Southern Right Whale or Patagonian Dolphins, walking among penguins, seeing the life of Sea Lions with one hair and Sea Elephants, visit a rural stay, practice diving and snorkeling with sea lions, meet the largest dinosaur in the world or
be part of the Wales tea ritual.
Another alternative may be to take a free transfer from the pier to the city center to get to know it and soak up the local culture, strolling through its streets and making some purchases, enjoying walks along its charming beach and taking in the views it offers of the Gulf, to then choose one of the several restaurants that exist to taste the local gastronomy, which ranges from fish and seafood dishes or a delicious Patagonian lamb and close the day visiting one of the interesting museums that the city offers.
