This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Punta Tombo, Chubut Province, Argentina

You'll go to Punta Tombo, a geographical accident that Magellan's penguin uses as habitat (entrance fee not included).
It is located at 3 hours from Puerto Madryn, on the road you will have time to appreciate Patagonian lanscapes.
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.

Stop At: Puerto Rawson, Puerto Rawson, Province of Chubut, Patagonia

Before going back to Puerto Madryn, you will make a stop at the Rawson's Port.
