Puerto Madryn, Argentina

The best whale watching everrrrr!  Southern Right whales come to give birth and breed in the bay of Puerto Madryn every winter and there are literally thousands of them that hang out here, close to shore, enjoying the views before heading back to Antartica. With huge calluses on their head harboring colonies of whale lice, the largest testicles in the world, and weighing up to 60 tons, it is amazing they are as playful a species as they are!  They were so entertaining to watch, I miss them already!
