Tito Bottazzi Whale Watch is a family-owned business and whale-watching...

Tito Bottazzi Whale Watch is a family-owned business and whale-watching pioneer with over thirty years of experience in Peninsula Valdes. We regularly see southern right whales from June until December. We also have the chance to see South American sea lions, marine birds, and penguins. Our office is conveniently located next to the ocean in the first street on the right side down 50 mts from the waterfront. We offer all customers a poncho to keep warm against the wind and water. Protecting our environment is our priority. We are partners with the World Cetacean Alliance and committed to the environment. We abide by the Patagonian Whale Watching guidelines and the highest quality standards to reduce our environmental impacts. Our bilingual, highly qualified staff will narrate the trip and talk about the different animal behaviors and history of the region. <We await your visit!

Bottazzi tour is a very professional and friendly agency with whom we went to see the whales at sunset in Puerto Piramides mid-October. The guides were awesome, we've learned a lot about whales and their way of living. But the most amazing thing was of course the whales themselves, it's a unique life experience. After the trip, the agency welcomed... More

We, my daugther and myself, lately signed in for the whale watching experience this afternoon in October. I had not brought a warm jacket, but a careful woman in the Bottazzi crew found a confortable and warm one for me, very thoughtful. The watching experience in itself was amazing, with lots of whales around. Our captain explained and elaborated on... More

This boat tour is an amazing experience to watch the whales from so close, you could almost touch them. The tour takes about two hours, which is perfect and you have enough time to spot the whales (and dolphins if you are lucky), see them play and take many pictures. The people of the company are also very kind and... More

On my bucket list, see whales in the sea. Well we have done a trip with this company. What a joy. They take safety very seriously, life vests and explaining the rules. We were with a large group on board but everyone is able to see the whales. You need to climb on board via a steep staircase, so for... More

What a wonderful group of people - all very friendly and wanting to show you the whales as much as you want to see them. The boat is comfortable and there is plenty of room to see the whales. The guides speak English and Spanish - and maybe even more languages. The captains are good at spotting the whales and... More

I would encourage anyone to get on board of a whale watching boat from the Bottazi company. I am not used to this kind of trip as I myself work with marine resources and marine mammals. However, we definitely had a great experience with them. First they take the time to welcome you. At sea, the pilot always wait for... More
