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.

We made 4 excursions with Tierra: (1) Tierra Del Fuego Parque, (2) Canal Beagle (yacht), (3) 4x4 Adventure + Canoe, (4) Beagle Food Experience. Had FANTASTIC times with them. I heavily recommend. Very professional: booking process, emails, Whatsapp msgs, guides explanations and timing... And great prices. Love it!

We had a great time. The itinerary was very professionally managed (transfers, hotel booking and the camping/hiking) and went like clockwork. Our two guides were excellent. They managed the pace of the hiking very well, prepared all our meals, took us to fantastic views points and were great company. The camping gear was very good and we were very comfortable at the camp site, even though we had some cold and snowy weather overnight. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and would recommend it to anyone. Alan and Fi
