We set sail from the local tourist dock crossing the wide Ushuaia Bay until reaching the Beagle Channel through Paso Chico.
We will sail around Birds Island where we can appreciate the birds of Tierra del Fuego. There we will observe: Skuas, Black-browed Albatrosses, Steam Ducks, Cauquenes, Cook Seagulls and Gray Seagulls. Then, we will approach Sea Lions Islands where we can observe sea lions of one and two hairs. Both belong to the Bridges Islands.
Arriving at the Lighthouse Les Eclaireurs (The Illuminators), we can see the colonies of Imperial Cormorants and Rocky Cormorants while we listen to the history of the collapse of the SS Monte Cervantes that he starred in 1930.
Continuing, we will navigate towards the east, enjoying the wonderful landscapes of the channel and the mountains that surround it. On the Argentina coast Puerto Almanza and on the Chilean coast, we will see Puerto Williams Naval Base. After a few minutes, we will arrive at the Penguins Rookery where we´ll see a colony of Magellanic Penguins and some Papua penguins.
Finally, we return to Ushuaia sailing near the North coast of the Canal, appreciating the characteristic flora and spotting some historical sites such as the Estancia Túnel and Estancia Remolino. At the end of the journey you will be surprised by the view of the mountain range that surrounds the city of Ushuaia and its sumptuous nature that surrounds it.
Note: at the beginning and at the end of the season you will see less penguins.
