Prices may vary according to dates and seasons.



We begin the navigation leaving from the Tourist Pier of our city, towards the center of the Beagle Channel, enjoying, as we move away, the panoramic view of the Ushuaia coast, spotting the most important buildings, the Maritime Museum (former prison), Museum of the End of the World, the industrial area, and the Olivia and Cinco Hermanos mountains.

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). Arriving at Isla Martillo we approach the beach and stay there. It is amazing to observe how the colony of Magellanic Penguins that nest during the summer season approach the boat with notable curiosity, enter the sea swimming below the catamaran and re-emerge. A party that invites us to take countless photographs.

From here we sail back to the Tourist Dock, spotting on the way, the Túnel and Fique Ranch.
