Whale watching in Chile

Chile is a country entirely bordered by the Pacific coast.

Thus, there are many sites for observing marine animals.

On the site of Chañaral de Aceituno, little known to travelers, in the region of Atacama in the north of the Serena and Punto Choros.

Between November and April, you will have the chance to observe Minke, blue, fin, humpback and southern right whales, but also sperm whales and dolphins, especially the Tursiops or bottlenose dolphin, recognizable by its bottle-shaped nose.

Sea trips are offered by caleta fishermen.

In Piñihuil and Melinka
, on the northwest coast of Chiloé and in the Gulf of Corcovado, it is again possible to observe blue whales.

Between December and April, up to about 300 have been identified among the 8000 that populate the oceans and seas.

At the Francisco Coloane Marine National Park, in the Strait of Magellan, southwest of Punta Arenas, around Carlos III Island (7 hours by boat from the city or 3/4 of an hour by fast boat), you can observe the famous humpback whales, which like to jump out of the water, to the delight of photographers .

For the luckiest, on the Antarctic Peninsula: numerous cruises from Ushuaïa in Argentina.
