Words can't tell how amazing the tour to Pinguin Island can be. You will see and feel more than any description can tell you. Before planing please align with the team because of wheather conditions etc.

Excellent service from beginning to end. Javier is a star! We took the trio to Isla Pinguinos and afternoon to Ria, both very worth it. Best wikdlife spotting in Argentina, hands down.
