Navigate on Beagle Chanel and discover Ushuaia's surroundings from a unique point a view. Pass by Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse, Ushuaia's emblem, small islands from where you can observe Sea Lions in their natural habitat. Visit a penguin's colony and stop at Harberton Ranch, a historical spot, and discover its activities.
The tour starts by picking you up at your hotel in the morning. Then we begin the navigation from the Touristic Pier of our city (port fee must be paid).
Watch the Argentine Coastline and the Navaro Islands, on the Chilean Side. Appreciate, while navigating, the panoramic view over Ushuaia, passing by the Maritime Museum (Former Jail), The End of the World Museum, and Olivia and Cinco Hermanos Mountains.
We sail Southwest, approaching the Sea lions` Island, where, from the ship, we will be able to enjoy the sight of sea lions specimens, watching them interact with their permanent environment in the wonderful scenery. We continue the navigation towards the Bird Island, the habitat of the Magaellanic Cormorants and Imperial Cormorants, and also a privileged area to spot specimens of the marine fauna.
Then we sail towards the Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse, in the archipelago with the same name, where the Mount Cervantes vessel wrecked in the year 1930.
Crossing the Beagle Channel heading North-South we will see Gable Island and Port Williams Navy Base (placed on Navarino Island, Republic of Chile). As we reach Martillo Island, we get near the beach and stay there for a while. It is amazing to watch how the Magellanic Pinguin colony that nest during the summer get near the ship with great curiosity, get into the sea swimming under the ship and emerging back out. It is a feast to the eye that invites us to take countless pictures.
We continue until we reach Estancia Harberton, which invites us to visit the first Fuegian Farmhouse, with its building brought from England. The house belongs to the Bridges family and had its origins when they established there after the Anglican Mission ended in Ushuaia. The walk around the Farmhouse includes its natural reserve, the Bridge`s family cemetery, the Shearing Shed, and the house facilities. We return to the local pier, sightseeing through the way back to both Estancia Tunnel and Fique.
Arriving at Ushuaia's touristic pier, get off the boat and you will be taken back to your hotel downtown Ushuaia.
