Here are 3 tips to explore the Beagle Channel to the fullest:
1. Choose an experience and itinerary for touring the channel:
Although sailing is the most popular way to explore the Beagle Channel, it is not the only one. There are also different routes and itineraries to explore it.
Depending on the interests of each traveler, different tours and stops along the channel can be arranged.
Depending on the experience you have chosen, you can also see: Los Lobos Island, Los Pájaros Island – habitat of Magellanic Cormorants and Imperial Cormorants -, the mythical Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse, Martillo Island -where penguins nest from November to April during the summer season – and culminating the navigation in Harberton Ranch, the first Fuegian ranch. Crossing the channel, heading north-south, we will see Gable Island and the Puerto Williams Naval Base (located on Navarino Island, Republic of Chile) and parts of the Cervantes Mount, a ship that was shipwrecked in 1930 -another icon of the city-.
Wear appropriate clothing and be prepared for the occasion:
Fuegian weather tends to change very quickly and even more so while sailing the Beagle Channel. Depending on the time of the year, there may be sunny or windy days. Therefore, it is necessary to be prepared for the occasion. Warm clothes, raincoats, windbreaker, hats and sunglasses are some of the basic elements to take to The End of the World.
