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!

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.

This was the turning point of the boat trip we took out of Ushuaia. The weather was very variable mainly snow showers and grey sky. The lighthouse is situated in the middle of the Beagle channel and was a good contrast of red and white against a backdrop of grey. We enjoyed the trip as there was a lot of... More
