The surroundings look different from the sea. The sense of contemplation changes and the details previously gone unnoticed appear at first sight.
Navigations along the Beagle Channel enable visitors to see the extraordinary geography and wildlife of Tierra del Fuego on board modern boats that tour around the surrounding islands and bays.
Generally, groups do not surpass 25 passengers and the outing starts at the port of Ushuaia and moves around various attractions on half-day tours.
One of the most complete itineraries passes by Alicia Island to observe a colony of sea lions. Afterwards, the boat approaches Isla de los Pájaros (Birds’ Island) where king cormorants and imperial shags may be seen. Finally, it reaches Isla de los Lobos (Sea Lions’ Island) in order to spot specimens of these mammals, both South American sea lions and South American fur seals.
