Independent excursion

Hi,

would like to join another couple for independent excursion to Punta Tombo or go around Puerto Madryn area of interest Dec. 10, Tuesday. NCL will be anchoring at 9:00 a.m. and departing at 6:00 p.m. Also can you recommend independent tours at port and how easy to book the tours since two ships will be there same day.

Hello,

WE are on NCL also arriving same day.

Are searching for an alternative to the NCL offerings.

Looking for a closer look at whales, and glaciers if possible. Something like the large Zodiacs.

Heard Ryan tours had something but can't find method to contact.

Please reply on when and where to meet if interested

Won't be checking this again until mid morning tomorrow during cruise day.

We were in Puerto Madryn and back at home now. Tours are available at the port for around US$40 but we didnt take any as we were told that the Orcas have already left the area. We took a taxi to the EcoCentro which we found interesting. We later found out that free shuttle vans are available from tourist info centre near the port from 10:00 a.m. to noon to EcoCentro.

Some friend have recently been to Puerto Madryn and contacted Douglas, an independent guide there and aht I know is that HE has been doing a good job. Why don´t you contact him and then let us know more about his service?

His e-mail is douglas.arg@gmail.com

Your report will be appreciated for other travellers, I think.

Warm regards,

Giena

Hello:

Did you do a day trip out of Puerto Madryn?

Any recommendations as to cost, bus/taxi, and things to see would be helpful as we arrive for 1 day on cruise also.

Thank you

P.s. were you able to find the 'roll call' feature under cruisecritic.com?
