Numerous examples of Southern Right Whale choose the San Matías Gulf as a breeding place on a smaller scale in relation to Puerto Madryn. However, every year the number increases and they can be spotted by the Coastal Road that passes through Las Conchillas beach in Bahia Creek, Port Nuevo, Las Grutas, Sierra Grande and Port Lobos.

Both visitors and residents of the region can enjoy this gift of nature from the beaches of the town. The natural dance of these amazing animals doing their tricks in the water makes the resort in a unique observation place in Río Negro.

With binoculars from the beaches or embarking on a tour, you can experience a real close live show about the diversity of marine life, which is always cause for surprise in the area. This is because there is the possibility to observe sea lions of a hair and two hairs and dolphins, which delight us with some jump.

Another place to observe these marine mammals is the observatory Vuelo Latitud 40, which has the necessary equipment to see whales, dolphins and sea lions.
