Of all Argentina's many hidden treasures, its marine life is surely one of its most valuable.

There are numerous species to be seen throughout the year, particularly in the Chubut province in Patagonia.
Three main observation sites allow both domestic and international tourists to see these gorgeous animals in their natural environment.
