Darwin Trip to Patagonia comming up

On 17th October the Charles Darwin Tour is comming up. We do this trip since 17 years. Its a trip into the kingdom of the Right Whales. But not only Whales are the highlights of this phantastic trip. Rainer Fackel joined the trip twice and today we show some of his pictures from the southern part of the trip.

Gerard Soury, the French photographer is enjoying the view at Ria Deseado at low tide.

Erich Pröll was filming with us for the ARD show " Die letzten Paradiese"

Gerard Soury is always happy in Patagonia. He joined our trips 4 times and uses his material for many book productions and articles all over the world.

Guanakos come very close at Cabo dos Bahias National Park.

We use the Containers of the Fisherman Camp at Calhetta Sara when we visit Cabo dos Bahias. The accomodation is basic but in the middle of the nature. It is one of my favorite places to stay and i share this feeling with many of my clients.

Bird Island is in the Ria Deseado. Its home of Magellanic Penguins. Here we have an appointment every time we visit this magic place.

Book now your 2011 Charles Darwin Tour.

False Orcas visit Pico

What a surpirse. Some days ago I left the port with a group of Gottfried Sumser on board. We were on the way to swim with dolphins that were sighted out of Candelaria.
I just passed the rocks in front of Madalena Port when I saw some jumps and fins in front of the Tuna factory....
When I came close we identifyed the group as False Orcas. We stayed with them fpor more than 1 hours, just some meters in front of Madalena port.
I did not carry my camera that day but Thomas Durant, who was among the guests on board, gave me this pictures to share our experience with you .
