Navigating between two oceans, getting to know the marine life of the continent’s most southerly waters and travelling to the Les Éclaireurs lighthouse are all unmissable activities on your visit to Ushuaia. Get an insight into the first expeditions to the region and to the plant and animal species present throughout the unforgettable Beagle Channel.

This is a trip of great interest in terms of both history and landscape, where you’ll visit little-seen and interesting points throughout the course of the sailing.

We set sail from the local dock making our way through the ample Ushuaia Bay until reaching the Beagle Channel through the Paso Chico (Small Pass).

From there we’ll sail around the Isla de los Pájaros (Bird Island) where you’ll be able to spot some of the island’s bird species including Skuas, Black-browed Albatrosses, Steamer Ducks, Magellanic Geese, Kelp Gulls and Gray Gulls; and the Isla de Los Lobos (Sea Lion Island) where you’ll see the Patagonian sea lion and the South American fur seal.

Both these islands belong to the Bridges Archipelago, which we’ll continue to explore sailing east to the Les Eclaireurs lighthouse where you’ll be able to observe both Imperial and Magellanic cormorant colonies and also hear the story of the 1930 sinking of the SS Monte Cervantes.

The final home-leg of the trip allows for stunning views of the mountain barrier and magnificent natural landscape that surrounds the city of Ushuaia.

Note: transfers to the dock and embarkation fees are not included.
