Whale-watching - Other Activity Cabo Polonio - Uruguay

If you come at the right time of year, then unlike in some places that take you on expensive boat trips to see whales, in Cabo Polonio you can observe them by yourself only 200 meters (656 ft) from the shore. The magnificent Baltena Franca species mate between August and November, with October being your best chance of witnessing (and hearing) their huge crashes into the water. If you’re really lucky, penguins and even dolphins can also sometimes be observed.


Whales can be spotted from the beaches in Cabo Polonio.
