Once done the check at the port, the passengers go on board. We get ready to begin the navigation and enjoy the wonders the Beagle Channel shows us. A tour guide accompanies us along the tour to share their knowledge about our surroundings.
Sea and coast birds join us along the journey and we make a first stop at the Bird Island to best appreciate them. Sightseeing, in another island, the South American fur and sea lions show us their interesting behavior and habitat.
We stop at several occasions to exclusively appreciate the mentioned wildlife and the historic “Les Éclaireurs” lighthouse. The landscape persists in its effort to dazzles us in each corner.
Going east we see, on the Argentine coast, Puerto Almanza and, on the Chilean coast, Puerto Williams.
We disembark in Estancia Harberton where we board an inflatable boat for 15 minutes towards Martillo Island. In the island we walk among the Magellanic penguin rookery and some Papua penguins for about an hour.
We return to the Estancia where there is a restaurant to have lunch.
Afterwards, we have free time to visit the main house of the Estancia – the first one in Tierra del Fuego – and the Acatushún Museum of Birds and Sea Mammals.
We go back to Ushuaia by land, driving through the scenic route “J” and the national route N° 3.
