a 30 minute boat ride from the main pier, this lighthouse is primarily interesting by the amount of fauna it seems to call it home. From many types of birds, to sea lions, its an excellent excursion and one not to miss.

Took a catamaran tour aboard the "Ushuaia Explorer" from Ushuaia to Tierra del Fuego National Park. On the way we went around this lighthouse and I was able to take some stunning photos with the mountains and Ushuaia in the background. There were many sea lions nearby and the captain did a good job of getting us close in order... More

We hired a Beagle Bay trip that was supposed to go to the light house. It turned out the waters were too rough and we weren't able to make it all the way to the lighthouse. We did visit beautiful islands with sea lions and cormorants.

The lighthoust itselft is not impressive, only the stories about it can make you travel in your head. You may see sea lions around it

Great place to see from the channel, on a really clear day it really stands out, Well worth taking a boat trip out from Ushiaia

Been so close to this lighthouse where a lot of stories were made it gets me had this feeling of doneness... It was all a view from a boat, because you can not go and walk to that place...but it is close enough to take great pictures of it and tell your friends you been there.

Although the sight of this light house standing alone in the southern waters is nice to see, it is the surrounding area that really makes this excursion worth while.

This painted red and white stripped lighthouse is out at the end of the Beagle Channel from Port Ushuaia. It was build in 1919 and still used today. You can get up close by taking a catamaran boat trip from Port Ushuaia.

The tour was pretty short and most of it was the boat ride, which is enjoyable but of course it's freezing and very windy. You never get off the boat and it can be difficult to take pictures because everyone huddles to the good spots to take pictures at the same time.
