At first sight, many think Bahía Encerrada to be a lake, but it is in fact, as its Spanish name confirms, a "confined bay."

There isn't anything outstanding about the bay itself, but you can behold spectacular views there at sunrise and sunset. I found it to be a good place to take pictures in Ushuaia. Also, it is nice to take a walk around the bay.

Just came from the dock and had to write a review. We were looking to go with another operator but they only had the giant boats available and they took us to this company's dockside shack. The tour was 50 Pesos dearer than the larger boats and worth every Peso! The boat has a spacious inside cabin and above that... More

I did some online research before we went to Ushuaia and found the tour offered by Patagonia Adventur Explorer the nicest, so I made a reservation via email. The instantly confirmed and everything went smoothly. The tour was very nice! The boat was small enough to get close to the islands and we also made a walk on one of... More

The bay itself is not too clean, but it makes for a nice stroll and you can sit on the grass on the hills on the opposite side and take a look at the city while sipping a mate :)

Had a wonderful tour with Patagonia Adventure Explorer, and my husband and I couldn't have been happier that we went with this company over the other options. The boat was much smaller and we got very close to the bird and sea lions, but the highlight of the trip was debarking the boat and walking along the Bridges Island, which... More

There are several boat tours you can take. When you walk down to the port to look at the options, the ticket booths swarm around you for your business. It's hard to decide. Lonely Planet recommends Tres Maris but I found the woman at that booth to be so high pressure that I walked away. My friend and I decided... More
