Beagle Channel

This dramatic catamaran cruise is a once in a lifetime chance to experience the same sights and sounds that naturalist Charles Darwin witnessed when he sailed up the Beagle Channel in the famous eponymous ship. Departing from the port of Ushuaia, the catamaran embarks on an unforgettable tour of the stunning landscapes and natural wonders that surround the town on all sides. As you sail out of Ushuaia harbour, enjoy the magnificent panoramic views of what is said to be the most southerly city in the world and its extraordinary setting, with jagged mountain peaks forming a backdrop. With a running commentary to provide expert information on the sights, the vessel makes its way into the Beagle Channel and passes close to the Isla de los Pajaros (‘Bird Island’), home to a large number of bird species, including a large colony of cormorants. Next the cruise sails around the Isla de los Lobos (‘Island of Wolves’), a rocky outcrop where large numbers of seals and sea lions take up residence. The catamaran offers both enclosed areas, for those preferring to stay out of the elements, and open deck space for the more adventurous, so there are plenty of opportunities for budding wildlife photographers, especially at Isla de los Lobos, where the captain steers close to shore. On the return trip to Ushuaia the cruise passes by the remarkable Les Eclaireures End-of-the-World Lighthouse. The duration of the cruise is approximately two and half hours.
