    The Shags or cormorants (as we say in the North) have a large colony in these rocks, the boat approaching slowly so that everyone can see them and photograph them. It is interesting to see them dive into the water and take care of the young.

    A small island dominated by cormorants that owners of it were made. There are some more birds and you will see some sea lions

    Boating by the beagle channel in the late afternoon offers beautiful landscapes and contrasts. The beauty of the place is magnificent. The island is teeming with shorebirds.

Where to stay in Ushuaia

Despite its nickname, Ushuaia is certainly not the end of the world when it comes to finding comfortable lodgings--as long as you plan ahead and reserve your room in advance. Hotels and hostels are equally crowded here during the peak season (October to March), so it's advisable to arrive with a solid reservation in hand. If you choose to visit during the winter (June to mid-September), expect to find many establishments closed for the season.
