This navigation, of an average duration of three hours, starts from the local tourist pier to cross the wide Ushuaia Bay to reach the Beagle Channel. The itinerary includes "Isla de los Pájaros" where we will appreciate the birds of Tierra del Fuego watching Skuas, Seagulls, and cormorants and of the "Isla de los Lobos" where we will watch sea lions sunbathing.

Both islands mentioned above belong to the Bridges archipelago, and we will know a third one, where the lighthouse Les Eclaireurs (The Scouts) is located, while we learn about how Ushuaia was back in the early 20th century.

During the journey back, you will be amazed by the view of the mountain range that surrounds the city of Ushuaia. This navigation is very accessible for all type of passengers, while the catamarans, fast and quite stable, are one of the most comfortable choices to navigate in the capricious weather conditions of Ushuaia.
