The route of the marathon will also allow you to see right whales, elephants and sea lions, Magellan penguins, dolphins, killer whales and numerous species of land fauna and birds that form part of the natural landscape of the waters of the New Gulf at this time of year.
The Secretary of Tourism of Puerto Madryn, Mariela Blanco, said that “we expect the arrival of about five thousand tourists linked to this event” and said that the  7,500 hotel spaces in the city “already register more than 50% of reservations by the date of the marathon.”
 Blanco stressed the importance of this type of event “to attract visitors during the low season months” and said that in addition to convening tourism “the marathon is useful to get to know the large number of attractions that the city has and that can be enjoyed without touring great distances”.
