Full description
You will begin the navigation of Beagle Channel from the tourist pier in Ushuaia. As you move away from the coast, enjoy panoramic views of the city and the coastline, and see the Maritime Museum, the End of the World Museum, the industrial area, Mount Olivia and Mount Cinco Hermanos. As you sail southwest, you will approach Sea Lion Island where you will be able to watch sea lions interact on the island. Then continue on to Bird Island where you will see Magellanic Cormorants and Imperial Cormorants, as well as a variety of different marine animals. From there you will sail towards Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse, in the archipelago with the same name, where the Mount Cervantes vessel wrecked on the year 1930.

Following the south coast of the Isla Grande de Tierra del Fuego you will get to see Estancia Remolino, where the vessel Mount Sarmiento ran aground. Crossing the Beagle Channel heading North-South you will see Gable Island and Port Williams Navy Base (placed on Navarino Island, Republic of Chile). As the boat reaches Martillo Island, its course will continue along the coastline and you can watch from afar the Magellanic Penguin colony that nest there during the summer. You will then return to the local pier, seeing both Estancia Tunnel and Fique on your way back.
