Day 5: Catamaran tour to Pingúinera Island

The catamaran departs from the touristic pier in South-eastern direction, sailing first into the Ushuaia Bay, with the frame of the capital of Tierra del Fuego to our backs. At the center of the Beagle Channel, the Alicia Archipelago is inhabited by an important colony of Imperial Cormorants. During the tour, we will have the opportunity to observe the majestic Black Eyebrow Albatross, as well as Scuas and different kind of gulls, not to forget the funny Steamer Ducks or Alakush.
Our navigation continues, and we now reach the area of the Les Eclaireurs Archipelago. Here, we visit the Seals' Island to watch the two species of sea lions, typical of the channel (one and two hairs). On another island, a lighthouse was built; it has the same name as the archipelago. It was indeed in this zone that the cruiser Mte. Cervantes sank in 1930.
