Trip on a Catamaran

We took a boat trip on a Cat. The weather was perfect and the guide spoke both spanish and english. Friendly staff onboard and reasonable prices on drinks and food.

We cruised in the Ushuaia Bay on the way to the End of the World. We went to a post office on Ushuaia and sent a card home to us. It arrived a month later. Recommend this very much!

If you are going out to see the bay you should really do a cruise of the whole channel. This is just one small part of an amazing ecosystem and scenery.

Not quite the most southerly light house in the world but for me well worth the boat ride out around the channel with lots of amazing wildlife to see a photo at every turn

This spot is not as exciting as the mountains, Laguna Esmeralda lake, but is another option for those passing by this city. Soon or later you will have seen many things and need to fulfil your time travel with some not so interesting places. I recommedn yu guys to schedule this spot for a lazy day or to the end... More

Weather is extremely variable. In a couple hours we went from warm and pleasant, to cold, then a blinding rain storm with high winds. But seeing the islands, and the view around us was worth it.

Take the Beagle Channel tour to view up close the numerous coves and islets on which Cormorants and Sea Lions love to call home. Keep an eye out for Whales as well.

Indeed, that's what all the signs in Ushuaia greeted you with. We were here to embark our Antarctic journey. Quite a few Antarctic cruise ships at the port. The town itself was low key. The term 'end of world' is mostly a marketing term for Ushuaia's tourism industry. It's a scenic bay, but nothing out of this world.

As one of the most south towns in Argentina (and South America), Ushuaia, which has a beautiful bay, is a must-see spot. Nature around the town is gorgeous!!! One should take a catamaran trip to see the nature from the see: mountains that surround the area are beautiful, you may encounter penguins and sea lions --I felt as if this... More

We arrived Ushuaia on our cruise as the dawn broke through heavy clouds and illuminated the port city and massive surrounding snow capped mountains. I don't think I'll ever forget the hues of sun light on the mountains. Absolutely beautiful quiet town. We did take southernmost railway trip and learned the history of the Tierra del Fuego National Park and... More
