The boat trip starting in Ushuaia Bay leading into the Beagle Channel is even more amazing than shown on every picture you might have seen before. Go and enjoy. Especially beautiful and less crowded in winter and early spring.

So - you've made it to Ushuaia and now you have to get on a boat and see what else lies out there. Clue - there isn't a lot since the various Euro settlers killed off the native Selknam. But it is beautiful in its emptiness and if you are lucky and get a sunny day the southern hemisphere light... More

We stayed one week in Ushuaia - loved it! We were blessed with incredibly beautiful weather that afforded fantastic views of the mountains in every direction. We left from Ushuaia headed to Antarctica aboard the M/V Ushuaia - excellent choice! Would love to visit Ushuaia again some day!

For our shore excursion, we went to the National Park with Edgardo from www.tourguideushuaia.net for a 4 hours tour. Our guide, Gabriel, was very knowledgeable and spoke good English. The scenery was beautiful at every stop we made. Lapataia Bay was impressive, as we were at the end of the Panamerican Highway. We also enjoyed beautiful Ensenada Bay, where we... More

Ushuaia is located in a special place. Surrounded by montains the bay has a great view. It is where all the touristic boats are located too. And it has the statues of the most memorable men of the Beagle Channel Sea.

The Ushuaia Bay is large and provides a nice panoramic view of the area, 360 degrees. Facing south the water blends into the sky, thus the Ushuaia Indians called the bay, "Where the water meets the sky".

We took a tour today of the bay and were able to see beautiful scenery and lots of wildlife (Cormorants, seals, sea lions, albatross, etc.). We also elected to go on one of the tours which stops at the penguin island - you do not get off boat, but the catamaran runs the pontoons aground a bit which gets you... More

Fabulous trip on the Beagle Channel looking at whales, sea lions, cormorants, a magellanic penguin colony and some wonderful scenery. If you have time, extending the trip to visit Estancia Harberton is very interesting, especially the marine museum.
