Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
In 1833, Charles Darwin set sail along the Beagle Channel. You can follow his course on a 2.5-hour catamaran cruise from Ushuaia. You'll capture sights of Ushuaia’s former prison, check out the End of the World Museum, and admire views of Five Brothers and Olivia mountains, among other sights. After reaching Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse and eyeing shipwreck ruins, come upon throngs of sea lions at Sea Wolves Island and the winged residents of Bird Island. Enjoy guided commentary and round-trip hotel transport.
  • Follow Charles Darwin's historic sail with guided commentary
  • Learn about and see local wildlife on Sea Wolves Island and Bird Island
  • Recreate history by following the Beagle's journey through the channel

What to Expect
Beginning with convenient pickup at your Ushuaia hotel, your adventure really starts when you board a catamaran for a sail through the Beagle Channel. Imagine what it must have been like for Charles Darwin sailing through this otherworldly landscape so many years ago. 
Listen to your guide's commentary about Ushuaia's origins as a penal colony while passing the Olivia and Cincos Hermanos mountains. Trace Darwin’s journey past the Encajonado River and Fique Ranch, approaching the Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse. At Sea Wolves Island, view the sea lions, fur seals, and king cormorants that call the rocks home. At Bird Island, see skuas, petrels, and giant albatross. Return to Ushuaia through Paso Chico, getting dramatic views of Martial Glacier on the way. End with easy drop-off at your Ushuaia hotel.
Traveling by boat is the only way to recreate this historic journey, and booking ahead guarantees you won't miss out on this popular tour.
