This morning you cross the green central valley of Tierra del Fuego to reach Estanicia Harberton, a private ranch built by the first British missionaries to reach the area. After a short visit you'll board a zodiac and wind through the Beagle Channel to Gable Island, part of the Harberton estate. Cruise to the penguin rookery on Martillo Island, home to Magellanic and Gentoo penguins. While you can't disembark on Martillo Island the zodiac cruise will take you close to the penguin colonies. The location of the island makes it a birdwatcher's paradise; be on the lookout for petrels, skuas, cormorants, seagulls, and albatross. Continue on to Gable Island were you will disembark for a picnic lunch in an old, rustic shelter before embarking on a 3 hour hike around the island. Your path will lead to many amazing vantage points of the Beagle Channel, and if the weather cooperates you might even glimpse the distant town of Puerto Williams across the Chilean border. Late afternoon sail back to Estanicia Harberton and continue back to Ushuaia.
