After that, reach Sea Lion Island which also belongs to the Bridges Archipelago and is inhabited by 2 different species of sea lion. Arrive at the Les Eclaireurs (The Illuminators) Lighthouse where you will find imperial and rocky cormorants colonies. Hear the story of the collapse of the SS Monte Cervantes in 1930. Next, continue sailing East into the wonderful landscapes of the Beagle Channel surrounded by stunning mountain ranges.

From Ushuaia: King Crab Fishing Day Trip with Lunch

2. From Ushuaia: King Crab Fishing Day Trip with Lunch

Feel like a local as you catch your own crab in the Beagle Channel and learn the culinary secrets of Patagonian-style crab. Explore a native forest and a traditional fishing village on a guided trip. After pick-up from your hotel, head to your first stop, a dense native forest by the coast. Walk through the woods to visit an impressive waterfall before returning to the vehicle. Next, see Puerto Almanza, the southernmost fishing port in Argentina. From there, drive to a small fishing village, where nearly everyone fishes, catching crab, mussels, and other typical mollusks. Meet your local host family and board their boat. Sail to where they lay their traps and pull them up. Hopefully, they’ll be full of crabs.  On the return to shore, your hosts will prepare a crab in the Patagonian style, boiled in salty seawater, and teach you how to eat it. After lunch, you will head back to your hotel.

What people are saying about Puerto Almanza

Everything was very good, we had a problem with the day of our excursion and they solved it for us without problems, they were involved at all times, they communicated with us frequently to change the day and we thank them very much.

It was an amazing experience. We got up close to the Penguins and Sea Lions. The scenery was breathtaking. I highly recommend this tour. You see so much.

Were lucky enough to spot whales out of season. Furthermore 3 nice stops made for different sea life. You get very close to the animals.

A well-organized tour, without haste and allowing you to enjoy everything calmly.

Beautiful trip over Beagle channel. Seen many animals.
