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!

Visited during a cruise on the Beagle channel on the last day of my trip. It makes a nice contrast between the surrounding landscape. Usually this is the turning point of the cruises in the channel, and the small rocky islets full of fauna are a nice complement for the trip.
