Puerto Deseado


To the south of the San Jorge Gulf, 300 km from Comodoro Rivadavia is Puerto Deseado. The Puerto Deseado Estuary is one of the largest marine reserves of the planet, a coastal area that arose after being submerged for a long time. The marine birds that inhabit its coasts and the abundant fish in its waters form this rich fauna reserve. Among them, the cormorants penguins, seagulls, skuas and oyster-catchers stand out.

During the summer this is the habitat of the one-hair and two-hair sea lions, sea elephants and right whales. But the biggest attraction is, undoubtedly, the tonina overa: a most beautiful black and white dolphin that mates in the bay. From October to April the Magellan penguin arrives here to feed and mate.
