Argentina Scuba Diving Off Coast of Valdes Peninsula

One of our clients went scuba diving off the coast of the Valdes Peninsula, near Puerto Madryn in the Patagonia region of Argentina. They got up close and personal with friendly sea lions, including some sea lions who even nipped at their hair in curiosity, perhaps thinking it was seaweed!

There are coral reefs, a protected bay, relatively warm waters, and lots of shipwrecks that have brought interested divers and snorkelers to its shores.
