Enjoy a warm, late afternoon welcome from our friendly expedition team and Russian crew. You'll have time to settle into your cabin and explore the ship before our evening departure. Excitement lifts as we lift anchor and set sail down the Beagle Channel, keeping watch for Magellanic penguins, dolphins and albatross. Please note: We recommend you arrive into Ushuaia at least one day prior to your departure start date to avoid issues with flight and luggage delays. A luggage transfer from your Ushuaia hotel to ship is included today. Ushuaia port is a short walking distance from your town; you are required to make your own way to port in time for boarding this afternoon.
