Beagle Channel Sailing Tour from Ushuaia
We sail with small groups of no more than 26 passengers in a friendly and familiar atmosphere, accompanied by professional English- and Spanish-speaking tour guides.
We sail on 15-meter long twin boats that allow getting real close to the islands where colonies of sea lions and cormorants live.
The boats are equipped with all necessary boat safety equipment and meet all authorization requirements set by the Tourist Board of Ushuaia and the Argentine coast guard (Argentine Naval Prefecture).Itinerary
We depart from the local seaport toward Alicia Island, where we will find a colony of South American sea lions. Then we sail to Bird Island to watch king shags and imperial shags living close to their nests, and from spring through fall we can even find their breeds.
Again, we head east towards another small island that, depending on the season, we can view South American fur seals. Very close to this island is Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse, an authentic symbol of Ushuaia, built in 1919. From there we have a view of the island where rock shags live.
On our way back to Ushuaia, we disembark at Bridges Island to walk along a path for the interpretation of wildlife, while listening to the history of the native inhabitants, the Yamanas. On this island, we can find the largest Yamana's "concheros" (shelly deposits) of the region.
As this is the largest island, we reach the highest panoramic point from which we can enjoy amazing views of the Beagle Channel with the town of Ushuaia in the distance. During the trip, we offer coffee with liquor, different types of tea, a delicious hot chocolate with biscuits and cookies and, of course, the typical Argentine beverage, the mate.Stop At:
