The tour is not well advertised in terms of what was offered. We were inside a heated luxury boat and had the option of a personal photographer for each of the sites. We were also left at the Estancia Harberton where we saw an old English settlement and had a scenic bus ride back! Must do!
Although you don't go off the ship on Martillo island, the whole trip, and the views are unforgettable. The tours in Estancia Harberton were very interesting, and with enough time to enjoy the whole trip.
It was wonderful and very informative .. spoke to post grad students at the Haberton Estancia and saw their work on stranded animals.
Maybe there are more penguins at other times of the year, but there were still heaps at the moment. There were plenty of birds and lots of seals too.
The only adverse comment was that we had to choose between having lunch at the Estancia or doing the tour of it, as we had arrived a little later than expected. However, given that was because we were watching wildlife, I was not all bothered by it.... Happy to forgo lunch to look at more interesting things.
A great day with close encounter with different species of birds, sea lions and of course penguins. The Estancia Haberton was quite interesting to visit as well.
The Estancia Harberton tour is the one I started wondering all the way, seeing Penguins and Beagle Channel Crossing and nice food we had at the Estancia Harberton. I wish I could go there once again.
First way overcharged By Viator. The Penguins tour was excellent. The Estancia Harberton was no working estancia. No cows no Horses no cheeps. Time waited except for the maritine museum
We were very disappointed because the promised SAILING tour turned out to be a cruise on a huge catamaran motor boat with hundreds of tourists. Absolutely over prized.
It was sunny but really chilly. I could meet a lot of Penguins so it was good.
Tour was great! Saw penguins and sea lions in the wild! The boat got close enough for some great pictures. Had a delicious lamb stew for lunch at the Estancia. I highly recommend this tour!
The trip in it self is amazing!
but don't use Viator. first of all, it is much cheaper to book this directly in Ushuaia at your hotel/hostel/Rumbo sur. Secondly, it was a hassle to contact someone for the hostel pick up service. Lastly, Viator customer service wasn't much help.
I hope you'll enjoy your channel tour!
