we sail in a comfortable and modern catamaran. The seats are distributed next to large tables, where you can consume what you buy at the bar (very complete). The bathrooms very clean. The route is beautiful: the landscapes, the fauna that can be seen from the boat but at a short distance.

It's worth the ride. I had bought the package until the eyes of the wolves but decided to extend to the island of the penguins. As we are in November there were few penguins. I don't know in other months but penguins were missing. The landscapes are beautiful and the Beagle Channel is very interesting. PLEASE NOTE: THE PACKAGE ABOVE SPEAKS AT 4H BUT REALITY IS 2H30. The 4 hour tour is more expensive and includes the penguins. CAUTION!!!
