Day 02 Ainsworth Bay – Tucker Islet
With the first light of dawn, the navigation will continue through the Almirantazgo Sound, until reaching the surroundings of the Marinelli Glacier in Ainsworth Bay, in the heart of the Darwin Mountain Range and within the Alberto De Agostini National Park. We will learn how life resurfaces after the retreat of the ice. We will start a walk to discover a beaver dam and the wonderful subantarctic Magellanic forest that surrounds it. On the beach we will try to spot sea elephants. It is not possible to guarantee such a sighting since the precise location of the colony is unpredictable. Continuing the navigation, after lunch we will visit the Tuckers Islets where we will see Magellanic penguins (a bird that lives exclusively in the southern hemisphere) and cormorants from the Zodiac boats. In September and April this excursion is replaced by Brookes Bay where we will disembark and take a walk near the glacier.
Night on board.
Day 03 Pia Glacier – Avenue of the Glaciers
We will sail along the main route of the Beagle Channel to enter the Pía Fjord and disembark near the glacier of the same name. We will start an excursion to a viewpoint that offers excellent conditions for observing the mountain range, where this impressive glacier originates and all its displacement until it falls into the sea. After this unforgettable experience, we will continue our excursion through the northwest arm of the Beagle Channel under the majestic gaze of the “Avenida de los Glaciares”. night on board
Day 04 Cape Horn (Chile) – Wulaia Bay
We will sail through the Beagle Channel and the Murray Channel to arrive at the Cabo de Hornos National Park where we will disembark if the weather conditions allow it. Cape Horn is an almost vertical promontory 425 meters high and for years it was the only entrance to the Pacific Ocean for tall ships. It is the last territory before Antarctica and is also known as the end of the world. It was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in June 2005. In the afternoon we will disembark at Wulaia Bay, a historical site that was one of the largest settlements of the native Yámana canoeists in the region. Charles Darwin landed in this place during his voyage aboard the HMS Beagle on January 23, 1833. This place also offers a visual spectacle of great beauty due to its vegetation and geography. We will arrive at a viewpoint, walking through the Magellanic forest where lengas, coigües, cinnamon trees and ferns grow, among other species. night on board.
