  • If you have the opportunity to hire a catamaran trip, you will be able to sail and see the fauna of the place and very close to the lighthouse to which Jules Verne alluded, a fantastic trip.

  • It is very nice the tour itself, because you sail along the canal and arrive at the lighthouse. At no point can you get off the boat all over you see from there. Both the islands you pass and the island where the lighthouse is

  • This is the favorite meeting point for cormorants and seals, they are happily stinking and flying all around the the rock and the lighthouse. I would suggest to stop on the way to the penguin island and not to make a trip just to come here. Sunset was lovely!
  • The southern most light house of the world. It is an amazing site. Must visit
