  • Navigate to Ainsworth Bay and Tucket Islet

At dawn on your Patagonian cruise, you’ll navigate through Almirantazgo Sound, arriving at Ainsworth Bay, inside the Alberto De Agostini National Park. From a distance you may see the Marinelli Glacier which descends from the Darwin Mountain Range, we will learn how life begins after the retreat of the ice. We will also take a walk to discover a beaver dam in the marvelous subpolar Magellanic forest.

On the beach, we will try to see elephant seals, but it’s not guaranteed. The precise location of the colony is unpredictable. Later, we’ll sail to Tuckers Islets, and after lunch we’ll board the Zodiac boats to spot Magellanic Penguins (which only live in the Southern Hemisphere), and Cormorants.

(*) In September and April this excursion is replaced by Brookes Bay where we land for a short walk and approach to a glacier.

  • Disembark in Cape Horn National Park

We’ll sail through the Murray Channel and Nassau Bay to reach Cape Horn National Park, where we’ll disembark (if the weather permits). The mythical Cape Horn was discovered in 1616, and it is a sheer, 1,394-foot high rocky promontory. For many years it was an important navigation route between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, and it is known as the End of the Earth. The park was declared a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in June 2005.

In the afternoon, we go ashore at the historic Wulaia Bay, where once was located one of the largest Yamana aboriginal settlements. Charles Darwin landed here on January 23rd, 1833, during the voyage of the HMS Beagle. This area is also renowned for the mesmerizing beauty of its vegetation and geography. We will walk through a Magellanic forest of lengas, coihues, canelos, ferns, and other native vegetation to reach a look-out point.
