We saw the Beagle Channel at close range when we went to Tierra Del Fuego in Argentina. We went into the national park and on the edge was the Beagle Channel. It was a wild day for this site nestled between Chile and Argentina. The views were magnificent and there was a walking path which took you along the side... More

There are two versions of this cruise, the longer one includes the penguin island and is about 2 hrs longer. It's a nice and relaxing cruise with a few information given but don't expect a big wow.

There are several companies that offer different tours to navigate the Beagle Channel. We chose the catamaran option, because it gave us the chance to go through the whole channel and get to the "pingüinera." We wanted to get off the boat and walk on the island where the penguins were, but they didn't let us do it to not... More

We did a sailing excursion with Tres Maria which took us along the Beagle Channel to an island inhabited by sea lions and to H Island where we moored and did a walk around this pristine reserve where nature is left untouched and one can bird watch and enjoy special fauna and flora in a peaceful environment. Highly recommend doing... More

A very good organized tour with "Piratour": a nice sailing that started on time, we saw the sea lions, cormorans and penguins at Herberton farm. Our guides were very good and carrying and did a very good job. Hadas, that stays at Ushuaia and work as tourism organizer, did the reservation for us and we glad that we trust her:... More

Beagle Channel is a gateway to antarctica, and it is really cold even though I was there in their summer season. Prepare warm clothes if you have plan for navigation.

OK, on my opinion, this is the type of attraction that you say: oh God, everyone does that so I have to look at it because I am in Ushuaia. First of all: if you really want to do it, do it in the MORNING. In the afternoon, its so common that the wind increases and they cancel the boat... More

It's over priced as i felt about the tour. This 2:30 - 3 hours boat ride around canal beagle is nothing special but if you attach value on "the end of the world", it might be good to do it once in your life time. As I come to Ushuaia several times, i wouldn't do it again.

If you visit Ushuaia I recommend to take a tour to the Beagle Channel. The tours usually stop at different islands. You will be able to watch different types of birds and seals. The lighthouse Les Éclaireurs is extremely interesting.
