Watching whales and dolphins
Isla Iguana is the ideal place to observe cetaceans, especially between June and October
The Yubartas or Humpbacks (Megaptera novaengliae) can be seen near the island. They travel from the South Pole to mate, give birth, and prepare their pups for the journey back to Antarctica. They start arriving in June and stay until October. The months of greatest abundance are August and September.
For his safety and that of the whales, stay 250 meters or more. These marine mammals reach 15 meters and exceed 35 tons.
Follow the sighting rules and require your boatman to follow them.
Help scientists study them
The fins of cetaceans have fingerprints, scars and distinctive shapes that differentiate them as individuals. Pictures of their tails allow scientists to track their migrations.
