If the ship you're on takes you here it will probably be the first landing on your trip. You can enjoy plenty of birds like caracaras, magelhaen penguins, ducks and shags. The owners serve tea, coffee and lots of cakes and cookies afterwards. Be on...More

This was our second stop in the Falklands on our cruise towards Antarctica; the first being West Point Island where we were introduced to nesting black-browed albatross and rock hopper penguins. On Carcass Island we had the choice of a hike to Leopard Beach or...More

Yes you can easily explore by your self. The island is small and safe and the family living here can help with food supplies but you need to cook yourself. There is only one cabin they rent out. Best to coordinate flights... More
