Ushuaia, Argentina - Sea Lions & Cormorants

Ushuaia, at the southern extreme of Patagonia, offers tourist resources that are quite unique in the world.

A land of legends that many audacious spirits in the world have dreamt of visiting, and a land rather barren, inhabited only by those who have accepted the challenge of loneliness, their only company being nature at its best! Located on the shores of the Beagle Channel, Ushuaia is the southernmost city in the world. The city of Ushuaia is the capital of the Tierra del Fuego, Antarctica and Islands of the South Atlantic Province.

It was founded on October 12, 1884, and the meaning of its name in Yámana language is "bay that penetrates towards the west."

It is surrounded by the mountain range Martial that offers a unique combination of mountains, sea, glaciers, lakes and forests, overlooking the Beagle Canal, in the South end of the continent. There you are only 625 miles away of the Antarctic peninsula and 1900 Miles south from the city of Buenos Aires.

Catamaran trips will take you around the Beagle channel and give you nice views of the mountains, cormorants, sea lions and penguins.
