This was a fantastic trip. Maria Jose narrated in both Spanish and English, and made sure that we all had a good experience. She answered questions and even gave a great recommendation for king crab dinner. We were lucky to see whales breaching, many kinds of birds (including condor), watched sea lions, trekked on the island, and viewed the lighthouse. The staff were professional and organized, from when we first made our reservation to leaving the boat at the end of the tour.
This is a smaller boat with only 26 passengers, and it makes for a more personal experience. We had sunny but windy weather, which worked just great for us. If you don't like choppy water, either take Dramamine or don't take the trip. That's just a fact of marine travel.
Ushuaia, Beagle Channel, and the surrounding mountains are simply too beautiful to not enjoy, and if we could have spent more than 4 hours on the water we would have! Simply stunning beauty.
Thank you, Patagonia Explorer team.
