Full-Day Gable Island Eco-Adventure at the Beagle Channel
From US$284.00
The Beagle Channel runs through the heart of the Tierra del Fuego National Park at the southwestern tip of Argentina. On this full-day adventure, paddle along the channel on an inflatable canoe, hike around Gable Island, and take a small boat cruise around Martillo Island to see the colonies of Gentoo and Magellanics penguins.
What to Expect
We leave at 8 AM from your hotel and we get back there around 6 PM. After a 1 ½ hours vehicle ride through the forest, we will reach the starting point of the canoeing activity. Wearing rubber boots, over pants and life-jackets provided by us and after a safety and technique briefing, we start a canoeing adventure on the Beagle Channel! Along the way we may encounter wildlife: we will see lots of birds, and it is not unusual to find sea lions sunbathing in little islands.
We will also sail on a motorboat to reach the pristine Gable Island, the biggest in the Beagle Channel and the one we chose for showing you this end of the world. After a hot meal, with drinks included, we'll find out about the way of living of the Yamana people and their environment, along a hike that offers an unforgettable panoramic view of the Beagle Channel.
On our navigation back to Harberton, we will dock our small boat on Martillo Island’s beach, where we'll watch penguins in their breeding lair from very, very close: a distance of just 4 or 5 meters. We will be back in Ushuaia slightly past 6 PM.
