Seals playing at Punta Piramide, Peninsula Valdes

Yesterday our article showed a video of killer whales hunting seals. Today we cover our visit to Punta Piramide which is located closer to the entrance of the National Park of Peninsula Valdes. On our way we saw many kind of wildlife: sheep, emoe and vicuña. The views in the hills are perfect.

Arriving at Punta Piramide we noticed there were more seals then on the beach. A large group was sun bathing on the rocks, facing the occasional wave, others were swimming just below us. Looking up to the tourists and calling. They seemed to be curious and played in the water. No killer whales in the area so it is time to have fun.

Gisteren toonde ons artikel een video van orka's die jagen op zeehonden. Vandaag beschrijven we ons bezoek aan Punta Piramide dat dichter bij de ingang van het Nationale Park van Peninsula Valdes ligt. Tijdens de rit zagen we vele dieren zoals emoes, schapen en vicuña's. De zichten van op de heuvels zijn uitstekend. 

Op Punta Piramide waren er duidelijk meer zeehonden dan op het strand. Een grote groep was op de rotsen aan het zonnebaden, af en toe een grote golf trotserende, anderen speelden in de zee onder ons. Ze keken naar boven om te zien waar de toeristen zich bevonden en riepen. Ze leken heel nieuwsgierig en speelden verder. Geen orka's in de buurt dus laten we er van genieten.

  1. What sensational photos of all these beautiful animals and the lovely places they live and roam. The sea lions appear very happy here. I've been up close to the Sea Lions that sleep mostly on the docks at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco. I imagine the ones I see there are very bored with their surroundings.

  6. I do like the seals. And is that a llama and an emu? But for me today, the star of the blog are those gorgeous cliffs that look like hey have been carved, and the brilliant colors of the water!!
