  • Does not go down to the island seen from the catamaran, advised to do the ride of the day that you visit the island of the birds, the penguins, the of wolves, Les Eclaireurs lighthouse and the estancia Harberton so take advantage of the navigation along the Beagle. Take pilotin by change of climate. the catamaran you can buy food and drinks and there is a photographer on board if needed.

  • Trapped tourists. A shame. Nothing that you can not see from the shore. Full of tourists addicted to the selfies.

  • Take a boat ride to see this little island full of cormorants and other native wildlife. The catamarans are able to get VERY close and manuever so both sides get a chance to see.
