We sail to the southwest, approaching the island of Los Lobos, where, from the boat, we can enjoy the view of specimens of sea lions, observing their permanent habitat, in a wonderful setting.
Continuing the navigation, we will go to the island of Los Pájaros, habitat of Magellanic Cormorants and Imperial Cormorants, and privileged sector to see specimens of marine avifauna.
We continue sailing towards Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse, in the archipelago of the same name. In these islets it is possible to observe parts of Monte Cervantes, a ship that sank in 1930.
Following the south coast of the Isla Grande de Tierra del Fuego, we will see Estancia Remolino where the ship Monte Sarmiento is stranded. Crossing the Beagle Channel in a North-South direction we will see Gable Island and the Puerto Williams Naval Base (located on Navarino Island, Republic of Chile).
