What You Can Expect
This peninsula, a fauna and penguin preservation area created in 1979, is home to the most important Magellan penguins colony in Patagonia. Almost one million of these loveable creatures arrive from the Atlantic at this place every year in order to breed, incubate their eggs, and prepare their offspring for migration. Though the first penguins arrive in September and stay until April, the best season to see them is after November, once the babies are born, so this is the perfect opportunity for you to experience the penguins!
Your guide will lead you down the 2-mile (3-km) stretch of beach so you can get up close to these amazing animals. Walk among the penguins, witness their habits, and see how they feed their babies, fight for the defense of their territories, and build their nests. You’ll watch these tender animals more closely than you ever imagined you could!
After this unique wildlife experience, you’ll be taken back to the Puerto Madryn port.

I got a bit nervous because the guide and driver were late as it happened to me that I booked a tour and the representatives never showed up but they finally arrived and everything was very nice. We had a good guide and driver, we were given a lot of brochures and verbal information. Punta Tomba was absolutely spectacular!
Excellent tour guide. Comfortable private tour for six was an excellent value. Would recommend to anyone.
