It's a Lovely Bay
Dec 2019
We came and went through this bay on our cruise ship as we traveled to Antarctica. The landscape is lovely and we hung out on deck to see it all.

Earth, Wind and Fuego
Mar 2020
This wide bay just north of Beagle Channel is the water gateway to Ushuaia, the world's southernmost city, which sits on the southern coast of Isla Grande de Tierra del Fuego.

The rugged Martial Mountains and Glacier Martial are just a few kilometers north (see my review, "The easy way or the hard way?"). Busy Beagle Channel is south (see my review, "Atlantic-Pacific link"). The bay itself is picturesque, with small boats anchored in it and large cruise ships docked at the pier (along with smaller expedition boats headed for Antarctica).

TIPS:

* For nice pictures of the bay, go to Ushuaia Aeroclub, south across the bay from the cruise ship pier, or go to the Ushuaia Sign at the western side of Bahia Encerrada in downtown Ushuaia (see my review, "Words with friends").

Magnificent bay
Mar 2020 • Friends
We sailed into the bay and the views were exceptional. The water is very clear and looking to land you have a terrific view towards the Andes. You can book a number of boar charters, some more expensive than others so watch out. Use the Tourist Information Centre as guide. We liked the pretty town and walking along the front for a couple of hours.

Beautiful Bay for a Cruise
Feb 2020
We arrived and left via a cruise ship but truly enjoyed our wildlife tour of the bay on a catamaran. We cruised past the Isla de los Pajaros (Bird Island) and Isla de los Lobos (Sea Lion Island). We mostly saw cormorants and sea lions but also saw some other birds. We went as far as Faro del Fin del Mundo Les Eclaireures -- the Lighthouse at the End of the World.

Beautiful Bay to Ushuaia
Feb 2020
This is a beautiful bay to cruise thru with gorgeous snow capped mountains as a backdrop. There are many small lighthouses on several small islands in the bay. Ushuaia is the gateway town for going to Antarctica cruises and expeditions. You'll probably see several high end SIX STAR cruise ships (very expensive) in port.

BOTTOM LINE: Cruise ships coming from Punta Arenas Chile through the Beagle Channel need to make a big loop to get into the bay. MY RATING: 8/10

In the Sunshine, just beautiful
Feb 2020
Very beautiful scenery. The tiny airport seems pretty busy, however the town itself did not appear to have much to offer. The homes are poorly maintained because most residents do not intend to stay long!

Bay and Mountains
Dec 2019
We sailed in and out of this Bay on a sunny day and enjoyed the truly splendid scenery. We took a lot of pictures. Don't expect perfect weather.

Wonderful setting of the town , water & bay
Feb 2020 • Friends
We just completed a 3 day visit to Ushuaia. On our day boat trip from the port, we had many great views of this coastal town from the waters edge up the mountains ! The bay is a lovely setting and is really impressive to see how the town runs up the close by mountain sides. The water looked crystal clear and the bay was truly a lovely scene.

Ushuaia Bay
Feb 2019
We had a fine view of all of Ushuaia Bay from our berthed cruise ship on our recent cruise to the southern tip of South America. The view was interesting - largely due to my maritime background - but fairly typical of many such small harbors and bays. Still, we were there and might as well enjoy the panorama view of Ushuaia Bay with it's surrounding mountains and the fringe of the town on its shores.
