Our Hotel Recommended this Whale Watching company. We were heading off at full speed to where they expected to find whales when they noticed some bird activity, they diverted to take a look and we saw a frenzy of Dusky Dolphins stirring up and feeding on anchovies, we then went on to several mother and daughter pairs of Southern Right...

This is a pleasant, non-intrusive way to see right whales in their mating grounds. The boats here are backed into the bay via a tractor, so no big pier intrudes on the lovely natural bay, and the naturalist on the boat probably speaks a language in common with you, starting with Spanish and English, but other languages are available.

In 2010 whales stayed till Jan 4, 2011 (we were told), but in 2011 they were gone by mid-December. Orcas come back mid-February. In between and without this 2 attractions it is a boring and desolate "Penisola". Avoid, unless you are in prime time for animal viewing.
