After boarding we will set our course for south of the peninsula, going through Salinas Grande y Chica. Once we arrive at Punta Delgada, around midday, we will enjoy lunch at the El Faro resort. After lunch you will have the opportunity to go down the cliffs and walk near the elephant seals.
We will then travel down the coast of Punta Cantor to get to Caleta Valdés (also known as Valdés Inlet). Here we will view geological formations before heading back to the Ameghino Isthmus.
