About Fernando Soria

Expedition Guide


Born and raised in Patagonia, Fernando has dedicated his life to the ocean. He acquired his skipper’s licence at age 22 and has worked in the Atlantic Ocean ever since. He is qualified to drive whale-watching boats, as well as tug and pilot boats.

Fernando also runs a scuba diving center, Abramar Buceo, with his wife, Mariana, on the beautiful Puerto Madryn coastline in Argentine Patagonia. It is one of the few diving centers certified to lead snorkeling and scuba diving excursions with sea lions in the nature reserves of the province of Chubut. Enjoying the presence of South American sea lions, southern right whales, common dolphins and dusky dolphins in his homeland is a highlight of Fernando’s daily life.

Being in Antarctica and in the ocean is very important to Fernando, and he is committed to helping you understand the beauty of this magnificent region.
