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.

Most lighthouses around the world are at the end of the ...land, if not at the end of the world. So in that sense this lighthouse is just like any other that you would encounter around the world. But what makes it charming and unique is that in your subconscious you know that it is literally at the end of... More

Even if it's not real one it feels like the end of the world. Very isolated only see and animals around. Great experience.

It was part of a boat ride to the Beagle channel and Estancia Harberton. It's a must see. I liked also the sea lions and birds on the nearby rocks.

During the Beagle Channel navigation tour in Ushuaia you get to go by this lighthouse. This is part of the tour but not the most interesting sight. Our favorite part was to get to see lots of sea lions resting & sunbathing on huge rock formations above water level. Then it was to see hundreds of birds resting also on... More

We took the catamaran trip (2.5) hours out to the lighthouse. The wind was blowing like crazy and watching the birds try to fly in the wind was so facinating. The sea lions and birds were great.

Visitation with huge catamarans is comfortable and safe, but you lose privacy, with so many people. One can see the lighthouse, marine wolves and marine birds. In the background the peaks of the Cordillera, several of which snow

Nothing special here. However you will be sailing in a cruise or in a Catamarã trip. So, enjoy the moment because it is different and is part of the show!
