We were with a tour group by catamaran. We saw all kinds of birds and seals. Nice to see the intricate waterway, and coast of Argentina.

Loved walking on the island for an hour with an enthusiastic guide. Much better than going in a large boat and peering down at the penguins. Only one tour company offer the walk on the island.easy to find their cabin near the port.

A lot of pajaros flying and louding! If You visited Punta Tombo, Far away , they can seem little pinguinos

Visited this island as part of a cruise in the Beagle Channel primarily to see bird life. Such a large number of birds living on such a small island. It was lovely to watch them flying and diving to catch fish. A bit smelly but this is to be expected when visiting a bird colony.

Take a boat ride to see this little island full of cormorants and other native wildlife. The catamarans are able to get VERY close and manuever so both sides get a chance to see.

I was hesitant at first to go with this company which has a monopoly to walk the island (all other tours cannot allow you to disembark) plus the price was a bit steep. It all, however, was worth it. The guides are very well trained and they gave us plenty of time on the island to get very close to... More

Stopped by it during the Beagle Channel cruise. Great photo opportunity but a bit stinky due to rotting sea kelps.

Catamaran cruises are a must in Ushuaia! You will see many birds, cormorans, sealions and penguins. Animals are so used to the boats that they won't bother, so you can get real close looks. 3 hours ride to the penguin island is 1500 pesos + harbour fee.

For those who, like me, never saw that kind of birds, its a great opportunity. They are all there, quiet, on the rocks. Tour of channel Beagle pass there.
