Canal Beagle, Ushuaia

4.6
While it might sound like a television network dedicated to videos of adorable dogs, Canal Beagle is actually a strait at the extreme southern tip of South America. The channel offers excellent wildlife watching, with plenty of cormorants and sea lions populating its waters. You can take a boat cruise to explore glacial offshoots and wild southern landscapes close to the edge of the continent, beyond which only Antarctica lies. Put Canal Beagle on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Ushuaia online driving holiday planner .

  • This tour can be purchased at agencies or in house of boats that are located in the port. The tours are made by large catamarans. There are two types of tours: one that leads to the lighthouse and back to the port and another that continues to Isla Martillo, where the penguins. Both pass through island where you can see sea lions and the lighthouse.

  • A memorable sail through the Beagle Channel with Princess Cruise. The ship passed through a number of glaciers. Beautiful landscape throughout although a bit windy on the deck...Recommended
  • Hmmm, it's a channel between south America and Antarctica so your experience will really depend on the size and type of ship or boat you are in. I crossed it in a very large Norwegian car ferry. Going out the crossing was very calm and hardly noticeable. However coming back was very choppy. We did see humpback whales though and there were orcas in the distance.
  • A must do! Loved every inch of my tour from Ushuaia. You can spot sea lions, beautiful birds abd the Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse .. the lighthouse of the "end of the world" :)
  • Sho w
