In a double sea kayak, we will rediscover majestic beaches and corners where the Yámana, natives of this landscape, used to explore in their fragile tree bark canoes.

This day you will see untouched beaches, thousands of seabirds and very often, sea lions that usually approach us, curious and friendly.
