We start sailing from the Tourist Wharf of our city, towards the Beagle Channel, enjoying as we move away, from the panoramic view of the coast of Ushuaia, spotting the most important buildings, Maritime Museum (former presidio), Museum of the End of the World, the industrial area, and the Olivia and Cinco Hermanos mountains.
We go to the Bridges Islands where we make our stop and descent. It is important to note that the walk that is made during this visit is not difficult and is within the reach of anyone.
In addition to having the experience of walking on a small island in the middle of the Beagle Channel, the objective is to appreciate the following three fundamental attractions:
Concharo Yámanas: archaeological remains of the original inhabitants of the Beagle Channel.
A few meters from the dock there are deposits from the Yámanas or Yaganes settlements,
we will enter one of them and, based on the guide’s explanations, we will imagine how they lived.
In addition, a cut in the wall of the conchero will allow us to better understand and
observe the stratification of the discarded mussel shells.
Interpretation of the particular flora of an island in the middle of the Beagle Channel.
Going through the interpretation circuit, we appreciate the particular development that plants, flowers and fruits achieve in this special ecosystem.
We return to embark and sail towards the southwest, approaching the island of Los Lobos, where, from the boat, we can enjoy the sight of specimens of sea lions, observing their permanent habitat, in a wonderful scenery.
Continuing the navigation, we will head towards the island of Los Pájaros, habitat of Magellanic Cormorants and Imperial Cormorants and privileged sector to see specimens of the marine avifauna.
We continue towards the Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse, in the archipelago of the same name, where the ship Monte Cervantes was shipwrecked in 1930.
The return will be through Paso Chico, spotting Estancias Tunel and Fique, we return to Ushuaia, with a view of the imposing frame that gives the city the Martial Mount and the glacier of the same name.
