    We will set sail from the tourist pier along the wide Ushuaia Bay, observing from another perspective the profile of the city of Ushuaia and the geographical distribution at the foot of the Andes Mountains until reaching the Beagle Channel through the Paso Chico. There, we will sail around the Island of the Birds where we will appreciate the Fuegian birds and then the Sea Lions Island. 

    Upon arriving at the Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse (The Illuminators' in French) or the colloquially misnamed 'Lighthouse at the End of the World', we will be able to appreciate the colonies of Imperial Cormorants and Rocky Cormorants similar in appearance to the penguins but of different species. 

    At the end of the journey, you can be amazed by the view of the mountain range that surrounds the city of Ushuaia and the sumptuous nature that surrounds it.
