Details of Day Tours

We will start together at the Ushuaia tourist pier where check-in takes place prior to navigation

We will board a catamaran and begin to navigate the Beagle Channel in a northeast direction for two and a half hours. Throughout the tour we will observe the different islands that make up the Channel, such as the Isla de Lobos and the Isla de los Pájaros, where the One-haired Sea Lions are found, the imperial cormorants and royal cormorants. We will arrive at the southernmost lighthouse in all of Argentina, the Les Eclaireurs lighthouse.

Here we will board a semi-rigid covered boat. We will sail for 15 minutes to reach Martillo Island. There we will get off the boat, with a specialized guide, to stay on the island for an hour. 

While we walk along marked paths so as not to invade the habitat natural habitat of penguins, we will be able to see more than 1,000 nests of the Magellanic species and around 9 nests of Gentoo Penguins, the only ones in South America. This is the perfect habitat for penguins, as there are very few predators in the area, abundant food, and the soil and vegetation provide adequate shelter for nests and breeding.

We will always be accompanied by a guide who will teach us about the life of these magnificent seabirds and will also ensure that the island`s rules of conduct are followed.
