  • After a navigation on the Beagle Channel, which allows to admire wildlife marine: Imperial cormorants, sea lions... (but), we come close to a small rocky spur beaten by the wind, which carries the "famous" lighthouse of the Scouts. We are surprised by its small size (imposed by weather conditions), and especially by its elegance: feels the mythical place, and we want to stay here...

  • The Lighthouse is part of catamaran by the Beagle Channel. You can see many cormorants and sea lions, too.
