Beagle Channel information
Navigating the Beagle Channel’s gunmetal-gray waters, with glaciers and rocky isles in the distance, offers a fresh perspective and decent wildlife watching. Operators are found on the tourist wharf Maipú between Lasserre and Roca. Harbor cruises are usually four-hour morning or afternoon excursions to sea lion and cormorant colonies. The number of passengers, extent of snacks and hiking options may vary between operators. A highlight is an island stop to hike and look at conchales, middens or shell mounds left by the native Yahgan.
