Camerones and the Valdez Peninsula are the home to thousands of Magellan penguins, who harbor here on the Patagonian coast until the end of March, after which they head south for the winter. This area is unspoiled by mass tourism and has an unhurried, casual air. The local inhabitants treasure their beautiful countryside and abundant wildlife. Facilities in the town are limited as cruise ship guests and travelers are the exceptions here rather than the rule. As this is a maiden call to a remote destination, take this unique opportunity as an adventure ashore. Vehicles and guides may not be to the expected standard so please be prepared . You are sure to take home some special memories of your Penguin Encounter!
