    Excellent Tour of the Beagle Channel
    slyon0515, Jan 2023
    We loved this tour! Pablo spoke great English and was great conversation. We got extremely close to the sea lions (close enough to smell them!) and the lighthouse. Pablo offered to take photos along the way. We had great views from our trek along Bridges Island of the surrounding mountains. There was complimentary coffee, tea, and hot chocolate on board. There was plenty of space outside of the boat to get a great view and plenty of inside seating. The tour was the perfect amount of time. Pablo and the crew were considerate of anyone with tours in the afternoon to make sure we were back in plenty of time.
    Up close to Wildlife -- good photo opportunities

    Cruise ship was late due to "protestors on the dock" and getting to the check in point was a frantic run, but we finally found the "little house" at the entrance to the port. Suggest someone might stand mid-pier with a sign to save the walk to "little house" and then back half way on the pier! Getting on and off boat was not too difficult. Just some facts for "mobility limited" guests. Guide spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable: 2 man crew were efficient and pleasant. Restrooms on boat were actually roomy and clean. Complimentary warm beverage service was welcome. Wildlife and scenery was worth the boat ride. This place is called "the end of the world" and after this boat ride, I believe it!
    Great day out

    Unforgettable experience
    Vicente_M, Dec 2022
    It was a great experience because of the nice of the Beacon. The Trekking on the Island was also enjoyable. The Catamaran also serves good drinks. Only issue was the Tourist Guide spoke too loud .
    Loved seeing sea lions!...

    Highly recommended. The female guide was truly amazing. She does know her stuffs by heart. The island was beautiful and the service of the team was great.
    Go on it if you want a scenic four hr boat ride
    Michelle_Y, Oct 2022
    The view was stunning but the guide was not very informative. We signed up for a English tour and the tour guide would do a very thorough explanation in Spanish and skip most parts in English. So we felt like we went on a four hour boat tour that was scenic but did not learn about Beagle channel or Yamanans as the guide skipped the entire explanation. Hope you get a better guide who is passionate about sharing the wonderful history.

    Boat ride through the Beagle Channel, visiting Alicia Island and Faro Les Eclaireurs. The ship is small so I wouldn't recommend it to people who get sea sick easily.
    Worth seeing nature this way
    Fernando_R, Sep 2022
    It’s a wonderful trip to see island of the lighthouse and the sea lions. The guide as well as the captain and crew make you feel very welcome, there is lots of time to enjoy the incredible views and take photos from the top of the boat of front. We had calm waters but still high winds so it’s something to keep in mind, go warmly dressed as there is a hike up a small hill

    Amazing day on the channel
    Fernanda_T, Jun 2022
    It was really an awesome experience. The crew and the guide were amazing. Super interesting facts they shared with us and treated us as friends, they were super kind, the coffee break was delicious and the adventure was incredible. I super recommend it.
    Amazing experience, the...
    Stanislaw_K, May 2022
    Amazing experience, the boat was not too big which meant less people, better viewing, everyone could hear and talk to the guide--professional biologist. The captain also was flexible, we followed a pack of whales once we spotted them. Only thing, I would encourage direct booking as the price paid in Argentinian pesos was, depending on where dollars are exchanged, between 10 and 40% cheaper than the price I paid through here. Also, bear in mind, tej cafeteria is only for hot drinks. Bring own food/snacks. Small two comments that are logistical, overall would do again. And nothing worse about the afternoon trip as opposed to morning. Enough time to see everything + last hoyr mostly trip back under a setting sun is unbeatable.

    Iris_K, Mar 2022
    Absolutely wonderful experience and must-see when you go to Ushuaia. The company was very organized and our guide Christian was very knowledgable, enthusiastic and kind. He taught us a lot about the history, wildlife and indigenous communities. We even spotted 5 whales in the harbor unexpectedly and our captain did his very best to get as close as possible without disturbing them. Would definitely recommend!
    Excellent boat trip to see the wildlife and flora.

    This trip was perfect. After finding the group easily at the end of the main pier. We entered a small ship, than we made our way through the beagle channel. The guide and skipper followed all our questions and wishes. We can highly recommend. PERFECT We could even see wales.
