In this area, they are known to beach themselves on shore to capture sea lions and elephant seals.The inner part of the peninsula is inhabited by rheas, guanacos and maras.

From Mid-December through March we will observe the beautiful Toninas (black and white Dolphins) playing in this area. Unlike the conventional watching service, the semi-submersible submarine, Yellow Submarine, allows us to watch whales submersed in their environment. Underwater, the perspective looks completely different, which is comparable only to the experience of diving among them. While they remain close to the vessel, we watch them all the time through the 40 viewing windows on the lower deck. On board, passengers can walk around at their liesure on the submersed lower deck, or on the outdoor upper deck and watch the whales from the surface of the water, as a conventional observation.
