DAY TRIP: FROM 10:00 AM TO 1:30 PM or from 3:00 PM to 6:30 PM 

The tour begins with a trip through Ushuaia Bay towards the Beagle Channel, departing from the port of Ushuaia.

With the catamaran you will skirt the “Isla de los Pájaros” (Birds Island) where you will be able to see the varied flora and fauna of the place. Skuas, Black-browed Albatrosses, Gulls, Black-browed Gulls, and Grey Gulls stand out in particular.

Then you will visit the “Isla de los Lobos” where the star attractions you will see are the sea lions of one and two hairs. Both Bird Island and Wolf Island are part of the Bridges Archipelago.

At Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse we will make the stop everyone is waiting for! There you will also be able to see Imperial Cormorants and Rockhoppers, and learn about the wreck of the SS Monte Cervantes in the 1930’s.

Finally you will take a short walk on an island that will reveal archaeological remains: Yámanas shells. This walk has an approximate duration of 15 minutes and has no difficulty, it can be done by people of all ages.

On the way back to the city of Ushuaia you will be delighted with the magnificent scenery of the Martial mountain ranges.
