  • It's a wonderful ride!!! It is from there that you take the boat to make the tour the island of Penguins.. Must.

  • We arrived on a tour with the company Rumbo Sur. We sailed the Beagle Channel, visited the island of wolves, saw the lighthouse, the island of birds and magellanic penguins on Hammer Island, then arrived at the room where we stayed almost 3 hours and then returned by micro. It belongs to the fourth generation of the family, being the oldest in the city, since its construction is from 1886. Its original owner was Thomas Bridges, author of the Yaman a language dictionary, native villages that inhabited the area. In the center of the city we visited the museum and saw its culture and way of life, but today we were told it had closed. The stay has a restaurant and a very interesting maritime museum. The full walk is worth it, I would not just visit this place.
