What to Expect
This full-day excursion takes 16 passengers for a ride, to navigate, to walk and to make discoveries in one of the roughest and most beautiful places in the Beagle Channel.
Once you arrive at Lasiphashaj river, wearing rubber boots, over-pants and life-jackets provided by your tour operator, the group will begin a canoeing adventure down the river that leads into the sea. Once canoeing on the Beagle Channel, you will set course to the ranch. Along the way you may encounter wildlife and lots of different sea birds. It is not unusual to find sea lions sunbathing in little islands in our way to Harberton port.
After 2 hours on the rafts and a short stop on terra firma, you'll leave on a motor boat towards Martillo Island, where we'll have the chance to see penguins in their breeding lair. The motor boat will then take you to the main attraction at Gable Island, where you have some snacks, good wine and a delicious meal.
After a nice cup of coffee, go for a hike to see more of this gorgeous island, crossing over beaver damms and through the forest to reach the Beagle Channel shore where we'll take the boat to start our return to Ushuaia.
