Silversea Expedition Cruises To PUERTO DESEADO

Silversea Luxury Cruises - Puerto Deseado

A wildlife lover’s paradise, Charles Darwin wrote that he had never seen such a secluded place, as he first explored the incredible estuary of Puerto Deseado. Darwin visited on several occasions as his evolution theories took shape, and the diverse, extraordinary wildlife continues to lure visitors to this small fishing town, set amid Argentina’s wild Patagonia region. Darwin’s name is imprinted deep into the folds of this city's history, and whether it’s on café signs or adventure tour guides’ literature, the great naturalist’s name is never far away. View more

Discover the impressive flora and fauna of the region for yourself, with a boat ride on the Deseado River’s winding flow - which culminates at the spectacular estuary. Forming a beautiful nature reserve, tiny Commerson's dolphins mill in the salty water of this immense, drowned river valley - which cuts into the rusty terrain, and wind-shaped scenery. There is something of a Martian feel to the desolate, rocky landscape, and the river begs to be explored further by kayak. Admire the acrobatics of the Commerson's dolphins – which may remind you of orcas with their bold black and white splotches of colour - and meet the extraordinary birdlife of this region too. Slicked back, yellow-haired rockhopper penguins and Magellanic penguins leap from boulder to boulder, as they nest in the dunes and hop across scrubby beaches and islands. Learn more of the town’s fishing heritage origins and drop in on the pretty old railway building - which now houses a quaint museum - as you immerse yourself in this remote and wonderful Argentinian wildlife hotspot.

Excursions in PUERTO DESEADO

Ria Deseado by Boat

During this journey you will enjoy a vast diversity of birds such as: Red-legged, Rock, Imperial & Nootropic Cormorants, Black-Crowned Night-Heron, South American, Royal & Cayenne Terns, Brown & Chilean Skuas, American, Blackish & Magellanic Oystercatchers, Flying Steamer-Duck, Crested Duck, Great Grebes, Black-Browned Albatros, Giant Petrels, Kelp & Dolphin Gulls and Snowy Sheathbill.


Other sea fauna have also chosen this special place to live & breed such as the South American Sea Lions and Peale's, Commerson & Chilean Dolphins. And last but not least, every year many Magellanic Penguins choose to stop and spend their breeding season in the islands that surround Puerto Deseado.

Road Trip to Oversee the Ria

This is a 1.5hrs journey to see the "Ria" from the places where Charles Darwin stopped with his expedition to admire the uniqueness of this place. Every expedition had a drawer, and thanks to this, we have some amazing drawings from Charles Darwin's Expedition in 1833. You will observe marine wildlife, birds, as well as stunning panoramic views.


You will depart from the Pier toward the coastal road for the first stop by the coast of the Ria. You will be guided to small trek in a rocky environment bordering the northern margin of the Ria, interpreting the geological formations and observing the Patagonian coastal birdlife. With binoculars, you will be able to observe a nearby penguin colony in an island in front of you.


You will then continue to the "Twisted Canyon", a geological formation from the Jurassic Era where sea water penetrates during high tide. You will walk towards a natural lookout to admire a panoramic view of the Ria, islands, islets and rocky cliffs.


On your way back to the Pier, your driver will make a brief stop at the "Cacique Orkeke" Monument that commemorates the Tehuelche Aborigen Tribe that used to inhabit these lands.
