Imagine sailing from the southernmost cities of the world to the deep waters to get a glimpse of penguins 🐧, Sea Lions and other sea animals in the deep sea. This imagination gets fulfilled in the trip to Beagle Channel Sailing tour which takes you through the waters of Tierra del Fuego. The journey starts from the city Ushuaia, the Argentine city which is the southernmost cities of the world.
About the city Ushuaia
The city of Argentina is called ‘El fin del Mundo’ (The end of the world) by its inhabitants. Although another Chilean city Puerto Williams can be a bit more southern than this city, Ushuaia is definitely more popular as a tourist destination. Historically, the city used to be the home for the prisoners, who were banished from the mainland for their crime.

My first stop of this sailing trip wasS eal Island of Les Eclaireurs Archipelago. Two species of Seals can be found there. After visiting the Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse, the journey continued through the coasts of Argentina and Chile. From there, we head towards the Martillo Island through McKinley Pass, to visit the Magellanic penguins which are native to this place.
