OPTION Nº 4

 

    NAVIGATION TO THE PENGUINS ISLAND (6 hours)

 

  

                                        Itinerary

 

 

We begin the navigation leaving from the Tourist Pier of our city, towards the center of the Beagle Channel, enjoying, as we move away, the panoramic view of the coast of Ushuaia, seeing the most important buildings, the Maritime Museum (former prison), End of the World Museum, the industrial area, and the Olivia and Cinco Hermanos mountains.

 

We sail towards the southwest, approaching the Sea lions island , where we can enjoy the sight of species of sea lions, observing their permanent habitat, in a wonderful setting.

 

Continuing the navigation, we will go to the Birds island, habitat of Magellanic Cormorants and Imperial Cormorants, and a privileged sector to spot species of marine birds.

 

We continue sailing towards the Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse, in the archipelago of the same name. In these islets it is possible to see parts of Monte Cervantes, a ship that sank in 1930.

 

Following the south coast of the Isla Grande de Tierra del Fuego, we will see Estancia Remolino where the Monte Sarmiento ship is stranded. Crossing the Beagle Channel in a North-South direction we will see Gable Island and the Puerto Williams Naval Base (located on Navarino Island, Republic of Chile). When we get to Martillo Island, we approach the beach and there we stay. It is amazing to observe how the colony of Magellanic Penguins that nest during the summer season approach the boat with remarkable curiosity, enter the sea by swimming under the catamaran and re-emerge. A party that invites us to take countless photographs.

 

From here we return by sailing to the Tourist Pier, seeing on the way, the Tunnel and Fique Estancias.
