Whale watching along the coast of Uruguay is a fantastic excursion in the winter and spring months.  Between August and October whales can be seen from the beaches in Maldonado and Rocha, 2 departments of Uruguay.  What makes whale watching in Uruguay different is that it is not necessary to go out in a boat to see them!  Most of the time the whales can be seen by simply standing along the beach, but some places have viewing platforms or piers so you can have a better view. Don’t forget to bring your camera!
