Known as Bird Island this is on the Beagle Channel sightseeing cruise and is a rock islet in the Channel close to Ushuaia which is the nesting and gathering place of a large colony of cormorants. A must for the bird watcher/spotter.

Sorry. No penguins here, but there are hundreds of Cormorants. They are also beautiful birds. We enjoyed trying to photograph them in flight as we sailed past the island. There are a few sea lions nestled in amongst the birds. We were not sure if...More

This was our first experience seeing penguins in their native habitat. Our cruise ship dropped anchor, and zodiacs took us to the island where we could walk around seeing, hearing and smelling thousands of birds. Very engaging.

I experience this visit as part of the Channel of Beagle guided tour. It was amazing to see hundreds and hundred of birds in this inhabited island. Pretty cool.

This cruise takes you past so many vistas and exciting spots to see. The lighthouse, the penguins and the bays of Ushuaia all are spectacular in their own individual ways. An absolute must is to take your own binoculars - don't share - it's worth...More

Most of the boat trips from Ushuaia pull alongside for a few minutes in each direction. Interesting to see the birds' behavior. Beautiful scenery.

Boat ride between Andes mountain ranges of Chile and Argentina. It can be chilly even in Summer. Wildlife viewing mostly of birds. Bring binocs &/or telephoto lens, and coat, hat, maybe gloves. Quite enjoyable, even thrilling.

We were with a tour group by catamaran. We saw all kinds of birds and seals. Nice to see the intricate waterway, and coast of Argentina.

Loved walking on the island for an hour with an enthusiastic guide. Much better than going in a large boat and peering down at the penguins. Only one tour company offer the walk on the island.easy to find their cabin near the port.

Many companies offer tours where the boat comes to shore and you can see penquins. However, you must stay on the boat. If you want to walk around the island - check out Pira tours......
