My husband and I arrived in Puerto Deseado after driving 9 hours specifically to do The Darwin Expedition tour to Los Pinginos for rock hopper penguins. The weather was not in our favour and so we changed our plans, cancelled hotels at a cost, rebooked at others and changed our driving route to make sure we got on the trip. In the meantime we did our second choice the rio deseado. The trip itself was fantastic, we saw dolphin, all the cormorants, sat with Magellanic penguins, were never rushed and The Darwin Staff were amazing, trying to accommodate everyone and make sure it was a good experience. So what went wrong. My husband and I were included in the same boat as a tour group who unfortunately were completely selfish and arrogant blocking views in their attempts to take pictures. To try and take pictures myself I was forced into a very awkward sitting position and when I moved to try and get around the group I jammed my knee very badly....granted this would not have happened if I was 20 or 30 but alas I am not. It doesn’t matter, what does matter is this should not have happened, if I fell and twisted my knee fine but to do so because a group of people cannot think of anybody but themselves is wrong. I spent the rest of the trip hobbling, missed the hike up to see the view but the worst thing .....I was unable to do the Los Pinguinos trip. The one tour we have been planning for, for over a year and drove a long way to get to. Who knows what else I may miss because of this. It would have really helped if the leader of the tour group had spoken to the group about photo etiquette and behaviour from a boat or if the leaders of the Darwin expeditions had. It is completely unfair that one group should dominate a tour designed for everybody and that someone get hurt in the process.

What an amazing tour. The staff are so friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about the wildlife. Not just that but so professional and considerate. Coffee available, multiple languages spoken, life jackets for everyone and great guidance on how to view and approach the animals with respect and safety. We saw so much from dolphins to seabirds, 3 types of penguins, sealions and some amazing scenery and history of the area. I cannot recommend this trip more highly. It has been the best activity in our month long tour of Payagonia.

We were not really prepared to find such beauty and a group of people so professional to visit the ria of Puerto Deseado. First of all, we visit the Pinguino Island in the morning, where you can see the magallanic penguins and the macaroni penguins. Roxana was an unbeatable guide who accompanied us on the island showing us the characteristics of the place and its incredible inhabitants: sea lions, penguins, and other birds that make up an impressive ecosystem. In the afternoon, again with Roxana, we spot gray cormorants, and an impressive diversity of birds and Commerson's Dolphins and Peale's dolphin. It was an unforgettable experience.

We absolutely loved our experience with Darwin Adventures! Of course we had amazing weather for our trip and our pictures on the calm ocean waters were beautiful! Our crew was so fantastic and absolutely did everything possible to help us better understand our experience with excellent translation and guiding. They did everything possible to accommodate our love of birding and we saw more species and quantities of birds then we ever experienced on ocean waters. We do appreciated being able to sit amongst the Rock Hopper Penguins and observe them do closely. I have had so many compliments on the pictures we took and our friends wanted to learn more about them. Our skilled captian did a fantastic job navigating around the Rocky island coasts and we got so close to the Sea Lion colonies. An epic adventure! Thanks for taking such good care of us,!🤗
