We work with small groups of up to 26 passengers in a family and friendly environment with the company of professional Spanish and English speaking guides.<br>The excursions are made with the “KAMS and“ TELIENKA ”Yachts, twin vessels of 15 meters in length, which by their dimensions allow a maximum approach to the islands allowing preferential sightings.<br>During our tour we will visit Alicia Island, Isla de Pájaros and Isla de Lobos, where we make very close sightings of the fauna of the Beagle Channel. We know the Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse built in 1919, a true emblem of the City of Ushuaia. Finalizing, we disembarked on Bridges Island to travel a path of interpretation of flora and birdlife, telling them the history of the Yamana natives. Here are the largest anthropogenic yámanas concheros in the region.<br>It also has a panoramic point from where we observe the magnificence of the Beagle Channel with the City of Ushuaia in the distance.
