We begin the navigation from the Touristic Pier of our city, towards the Beagle Channel, enjoying as we move away from the coast, a panoramic view of Ushuaia`s coast,
sightseeing the most important buildings, such as the Maritime Museum (Old Prison), theEnd of the World Museum, the industrial area, and Mounts Olivia and Cinco Hermanos.
We sail Southwest, approaching the Sea lions` Island, where, from the ship, we will be able to enjoy the sight of sea lions specimens, watching them interact with their permanent environment in a wonderful scenery.
We continue the navigation towards the Bird Island, habitat of the Magaellanic
Cormorants and Imperial Cormorants, and also a privileged area to spot specimens of the marine fauna.
Then we sail towards the Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse, in the archipelago with the same name, where the Mount Cervantes vessel wrecked on the year 1930.
Following the South coast of the Isla Grande de Tierra del Fuego we will get to see
Estancia Remolino, where the vessel Mount Sarmiento is ran aground.
